Please join us on January 3, 2011 at 2:00 EST for a bonus virtual meeting of
the Dance Librarians Discussion Group. Our special guest at that time will be
New York City Ballet soloist and film producer, Ellen Bar, whose New York
Export: Opus Jazz was released recently on DVD. Ellen has agreed to be
available to answer your questions about the film via chat for about a half
hour or so.
Nearly five years in the making, New York Export: Opus Jazz, is a new
adaptation of Jerome Robbins’ 1958 “ballet in sneakers,” shot on location
in various sites in New York. For more information on the project, see:
My sincere apologies for the short lead time, much of this delay was due to
ALA’s disabling of the chat function on the ALA Connect site in early
December. We will be using the third-party software, dimdim, for this text
chat, but you do not have to register with the site. Please let me know the
e-mail address you wish to use and I will send you an invitation to the meeting directly.
