Re–Envisioned 2020 – 21
As we continue to navigate the reality of this pandemic, all of us at sjDANCEco hope that this finds you and yours safe and well.
Looking ahead, wanting and hoping to be realistic about when we might all meet again in the theatre to share in the unique domain of the Dance, sjDANCEco has Re – Envisioned our 18th Annual October performances forwarding them to late
Spring of 2021.
Until then…
We plan to keep you in our sphere and engaged with monthly highlights of past sjDANCEco performances, some never seen in the Bay Area and potentially some glimpses of new work in beginning stages.
Re–Envisioned Edition ONE
Celebrates the Summer Birthdays of our Artistic Team
Maria Basile, Hsiang Hsiu Lin and Fred Mathews’ 75th this month  


Birthing the Ascension 

A journey to enlightenment through choosing life’s ‘Upward Spiral’. Choreographed and performed by Artistic Director Maria Basile.


Is a metaphor for the transition of a physical being to that of a spiritual being. It is a dedication by sjDANCEco’s Choreographic Advisor/Choreographer 

Fred Mathews to his artistic mentor, Harriettte Ann Gray.

*Harriette Ann Gray was a member of the pioneering American Modern Dance Company Humphrey – Weidman, Founder of the Dance Program at Stephens College and choreographer for film and television.


Pursues the emotional experiences of passion, love and self. Choreographed and performed by Company Dancer/Choreographer Hsiang Hsiu Lin.

"It is in (dance's) power and province to reaffirm the dignity of man in an age that desperately needs this affirmation. Never have the arts been so much needed, nor so challenged. Surely Dance can remind us of the greatness of man's spirit, and of his creativeness, not his destructiveness." - Jose Limon
