YOU WONT WANT TO MISS THIS!
Click here to Purchase Your Ticket ONLINE


This year's Patron Party will feature an experience like no other. We are honored and proud to introduce our entertainment for this year's VIP experience at our Gala!  Storytellers Dance Project is an amazing group of dancers, who consider New Orleans home.  Featuring thirteen incredible performers, as well as original choreography by Founder and Director, Leigh M. Brockman Horowitz, you don't want to miss this amazing event! 

Storytellers Dance Project will be returning to the streets of 1911 France in their first presentation, “Via Con Me”. Be sure to catch the street performing mimes during the patron party for what is sure to be some very fun and very silly photo opportunities.

In their second dance presentation, Storytellers Dance Project takes you into the ballrooms of the French Courts, where attraction, desire and love can be a very dangerous game.  “The Waltz” is a whirling look at what hides behind the mask! 

This is all happening during the 11th Annual Refrigerator Art Auction & Gala Patron Party on Saturday, September 27, 2014. Your Patron Party ticket will give you access to the private party from 6-7pm and VIP access from 7pm-10pm.

ABOUT THE COMPANY: 
Storytellers Dance Project, a New Orleans-based Contemporary Dance Company, was founded by Leigh M. Brockman Horowitz in order to create an environment in which the story, and story-telling medium, were seamlessly tied to all things dance.  Being born and based in New Orleans, a city long known for its own brand of unique narrative, Storytellers Dance Company strives to be a part of this rich history through their dance creations and characters.

With thirteen charter members who excel in several different styles of dance, although contemporary dance is the mainsail of the company, Storytellers is eager to promote its love of dance, stories, and New Orleans!

The thirteen charter dancers are Kelly Amstutz, Meryl Dakin, Teresa Fardella, Brandon Garza, Hilary Landry, Diana Madrigal-Barnitz, Maggie Moore, Lisa Richardson, Jamie Roussel, Carly Sistrunk, Kristinann Charleigh Harmon Bryant-Stelly, Allie Timberlake and Megan Zuchowski.


ABOUT THE DIRECTOR:
Leigh M. Brockman Horowitz has been dancing, performing and teaching in the Greater New Orleans area since early 2000, but her dance training began as a young artist with New Orleans' own Lelia Haller School of Classical Ballet.  Ms. Horowitz studied Speech and Theater under Liz Argus while attending Mount Carmel Academy, as well as Chorale Training under Melanie Williams.  Ms. Horowitz continued her stage training at Mary Washington College (Fredericksburg, VA) through the MWC Chorus under Dr. Stephen Burton and their Theater for Social Justice.  While at MWC, Ms. Horowitz also honed her leadership skills through four years as a Judicial Board Member, as a chorus member, then leader, of MWC's Catholic Student Association's Choir, all while earning her B.A. in English.

Upon graduation, Ms. Horowitz traveled to Omak, Washington, where she was a member of the Jesuit Volunteer Corps (JVC) at Paschal Sherman Indian School.  While there, Ms. Horowitz had the opportunity to begin teaching Musical Theater Dance and Beginning Ballet.  Through the LFW School of Dance, The Traveling Globe Theater and the OVAC Orchestra and Chorus, Ms. Horowitz returned to her classical ballet roots, while also training in jazz, musical theater and modern, through performing, teaching and appearing in (and/ or stage managing) "Cinderella," "The Nutcracker," "The Twelve Dancing Princesses," "Annie," "The Man of La Mancha," "As You Like It" and "Crazy For You."  


In 2000, Ms. Horowitz returned home to New Orleans, where she continued her classical ballet training (Vaganova Method) under Gayle Parmelee and Laura Zambrano at Loyola University New Orleans.  While there, she had the opportunity to work under Valerie Concha-Smith (Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo), Paul Vasterling (Nashville Ballet) and Konstantin and Irina Uralsky (Bolshoi Ballet).  Ms. Horowitz trained and performed with the Komenka Ethnic Dance and Music Ensemble, as both a corps member and soloist, on national and international tours, and through their affiliation with Young Audiences touring all over the Gulf Coast, for thirteen years.  Ms. Horowitz also trained in modern under Eddy Villalta and his company, D'Project, for five years.  Ms. Horowitz had the great honor of continuing her study of the Vaganova Syllabus, Teachers' Training, under Maestro Vladimir Issaev at the Arts Ballet Theater of Florida (Miami, FL), where she earned her certification for teaching syllabus levels 1-4.

Most currently, Ms. Horowitz performs and teaches for the Loyola Ballet, teaching Levels I, III, V, Pointe and Contemporary Workshop.  She also teaches a weekly Contemporary Dance Class at The Studio-School of Dance.  Ms. Horowitz works as a full-time paralegal in a New Orleans-based firm in the Warehouse District, and is also very happy to head "home" every summer to Mount Carmel Academy as their Resident Choreographer for their Junior Program's Summer Musical Theater Workshop.  


Ms. Horowitz is thrilled to bring Storytellers DANCE Project to life and hopes that everyone connected to this project has an amazing experience!
