Article by Courtney Kenyon  (AL/DD Marketing/ Development Intern)

Anabella Lenzu, founder of DanceDrama, author of Unveiling Motion and Emotion, and teacher and choreographer for 25 years, is deep in the creative process of her newest book. Inspiration struck when Anabella came across many different texts while teaching, all of which didn’t truly explain the movement they were discussing, as it is so hard to put into a photograph, what every part of a dancers body is doing. Anabella’s philosophy is that the journey is the destination – one must bring as much focus and energy to training as to performing.

Over the past year, Anabella has written 32 articles exploring multiple topics for her latest book, Meaningful Gestures: Inner Thoughts and Outward Expressions. This second book, is meant to be an educational guidebook for young dancers, actors and performers, taking experiences from her own classroom, after deep discussions with her students and colleagues. Meaningful Gestures will stray from the format of the first book, as this will be more focused on the technical physical and mental aspects of dance itself. Some featured articles will include Movement or Gestures, Why I am Giving Away my Secrets, The Mask as a Doorway, Breathe before You Move, and Body Architecture, Discovering Improvisation.  This book comes naturally to Anabella; she tells me: ‘Dance is my primary mode of personal expression, my obsession, how I make my living and where I find joy. I have strong opinions about dance that often contradict what is popular, and I enjoy explaining my position to people who are interested and engaged in dance. I believe that Dance is union and communion with ourselves, with others and with the environment. I celebrate, meditate, respond, protest, explore, scream, cry and laugh about life through dance. My own work is intimate, audacious and historically/socially conscious.’ The hope is that this book will serve current and future dancers as they continue to train and explore the professional world of dance.

This past summer, Anabella worked with her husband and photographer Todd Carroll to best capture dancer Lauren Ohmer working with her body and dissecting each specific movement. The book will feature not only pictures of Lauren, but also photos including Anabella working with Lauren and other dancers, helping to make the text more clear. Anabella is working with a new special program on the iPad Pro, to create illustrations to go over some photographs and to serve as companions to the text. Detailed drawings of the muscles and the body in movement, will help dancers better understand strong technique and muscle movement.

As of today, Anabella is hopeful that with her busy schedule, the book will make its premiere in January of 2017! Thank you to all of those who have supported the book thus far, I am sure it will not disappoint!

Without books I couldn’t have imagined my life now, in New York.
I never would have left my cocoon in Bahia Blanca, Argentina. I never would have spread my wings. I never would have given myself the chance.
That is why I write – to give others the courage to believe in themselves, the courage to grow.

Thanks to Dance Mogul for your support and for your interview!
