This event also celebrates the company’s 10th Anniversary and its new residency at the Little Haiti Cultural Center, where the Ensemble rehearses and teaches children and adult classes open to the community.
Founded on Miami Beach in 2000, the Dance Now! Ensemble is committed to the development of modern dance-theatre in South Florida and beyond. DNE is co-directed by Hannah Baumgarten, a Juilliard graduate dancer and choreographer, and Diego Salterini, a Roman born and trained Italian dancer and teacher. DNE has elaborated an emerging international style inspired by western dance traditions, but attracting and reaching younger, multi-national audiences through eclectic choices of music and contemporary themes. DNE’s work has been performed in eight states, South America and Europe. The Ensemble’s goals are to perform high quality dance, build community, promote diversity, and through teaching and outreach, help audiences gain a deeper understanding of the creative process in dance.
