SAVE THE DATE: FRIDAY, June 2nd, 2017 at 7:30pm

I will show a 15 minute excerpt of a new choreographic study entitled “No more beautiful dances”.

Come and see the beginning of what will be a larger solo show I’m working on as part of my MFA thesis.
“No more beautiful dances” wrestles with the ideas of exploration, introspection and reframing a woman after becoming a mother, and being an inmigrant. 
Through real and fantastic characters, Lenzu’s dance theater piece uses spoken word, music landscapes and photo projections to tell a personal vision of femininity, and 
what it means to be a woman today.
Choreographer and Dancer: Anabella Lenzu
Video Projector Design: Todd Carroll
Costumes: Jennifer Johanos.

Learn how teach dance and provide a comprehensive dance education. This Laboratory is for artists and educators of all dance disciplines who want to learn how to increase their students’ creative ability by providing organized lesson plans aimed at solving educational problems using methodological tools of analysis. Promote artistic education and enhance the social and cultural community. Dance is a profound exploration of life.

We must improve how we teach Dance as a theoretical and practical discipline.


It is an honor for me to be able to sustain and support dancers in the delicate task of cultivating their awareness of themselves as individual artists. As we become aware of our passions and strengths, we are able to wake the creative impulse in others.  I seek what is essential and want to connect or reconnect people with the joy of dance.

Wherever I go, I teach with a human and comprehensive pedagogy in which creativity, ethics and aesthetics are intertwined. – Anabella

What does it mean to disappear?
In Pursuit is a dance-theater piece that explores the themes of death, memory and hope through a collage of juxtapositions.
“I want the happiness that comes from both remembering and from fighting against remembering. A happiness that includes the sadness, pain and injury of experience but also goes forward. Not memory that works like an anchor, but like a catapult. Not a memory that you just arrive at, but one that’s a launch pad.”
Eduardo Galeano
In Pursuit of Happiness is an ongoing daily memory trip to remember and honor Mrs. Lenzu’s father, Antonio, who served as her guide and scaffolding. From a vibrating silence emerges unexpected meaning, so profoundly personal that is anonymous and universally accessible.

Gracias Agustina Lluma & Balletin Dance en Argentina

por celebrar mi década de Danza en Nueva York y por su apoyo permanente!!!!

“Diez años en Nueva York, marcan un intenso período de mi vida (de mis 30 a 40 años). Me mudé a Nueva York hace 11 años, me convertí en mamá, profesora en diferentes universidades y cumplí mi sueño de crear una compañía de baile en Estados Unidos (la primera que dirigí fue L’Atelier Ballet Contemporaneo en Argentina (1994-2000) y la segunda en Roma (2002-2005)”, recordó. “Vivir en Nueva York es gratificante, difícil e inspirador. Trabajar con bailarines de todo el mundo y con un público tan internacional, es el fuego que purifica mis ideas coreográficas”, finalizó la argentina que asegura encontrarse “feliz y orgullosa”.
