Art House Film Night: Make Me Dance

  • Underground Exchange 1016 West Ojai Avenue Ojai, CA, 93023 United States (map)

Join us Sunday, June 15th for an evening of movement and beauty with "Make Me Dance". Make Me Dance is a documentary that takes an in-depth look at one of the most prestigious dance schools in the U.S., Boston Conservatory at Berklee. In the film, world-renowned choreographer Darrell Moultrie, a proud New Yorker who was born and raised in Harlem and studied at the Juilliard School, has chosen to hold residency at Boston Conservatory to craft his new work, Winds of Now, for the school’s young dancers. With energy and conviction, Moultrie breaks the stereotypes of dance body type (i.e., the “ballet look”) to redefine what it means to be a dancer, and to have these new views be accepted into the ballet and modern dance world. The film documents Moultrie’s choreography and his drive for perfection in unlocking students’ talent to create Winds of Now, from its very conception through rehearsals, to opening night at Boston Conservatory. The film begins at 7:00, and there is a suggested donation of $10 at the door which includes complimentary popcorn. Beverages are also available for donation.
