Dancing into the New Year
NEW YORK CITY — Mark DeGarmo Dance (MDD) helped dance enthusiasts ring in 2022 with an array of original dance performances through MDD’s 12th annual Virtual Performance Series for Social Change on Thursday, Jan. 6.
Starting at 7 p.m. that evening, viewers could tune in to the world wide web to watch dancers Makayla Peterson, Paramita Bhattacharyya, Aviva Geismar and Barbara Mahler perform on Zoom, thanks to the vision of Pine Plains native and part-time Ancram resident and famed choreographer DeGarmo.
Following the presentation, the featured dancers and choreographers, along with DeGarmo, chatted with audience members during a discussion that DeGarmo facilitated.
