The biggest highlight of the evening was the screening of the three world premieres: the colorful Parade, the powerful Willow, and the playful Dollhouse. All are available for public screening thanks to the Company's commitment to contribute this digital resource widely and freely, contributing to the Open Educational Resources movement (OER), a commitment to equity, inclusion, and access.

The launch weekend ignited with a festive, pride-focused ribbon-cutting ritual initiated by each evening's guest artist. The swift-moving program took audiences on a guided tour of the new platform, the heart of which is the release of footage from the Company's acclaimed productions of Encore. A show about putting on a show, this viewing of Encore is a dynamic, accessible way to usher patrons behind-the scenes and into the center of the creative and performing processes. The platform uses dance films to illuminate and illustrate dance concepts and compositional devices. Each month, a new slate of film premieres will launch on the platform. 

HIGHLIGHTS FROM DANIEL'S LIVE DISCUSSION WITH THE GUESTS
"That's what this project is about – discovering the process that leads up to the product," said Daniel Gwirtzman, founder, Daniel Gwirtzman Dance Company. "And for dancers and artists in general, it's the process where you spend most of your time – most of the blood, sweat, and tears, the joys the struggles, happens in the studio and not on the stage. Revealing that process is exciting, vulnerable, and full of new information for the audience, the dancers, and myself."

"Modern dance gets this rap of being full of angst and it's understandable that it's the least understood. The idea of this platform is to deliver on a philosophy that the Daniel Gwirtzman Dance Company has been sharing its whole twenty-three years which is that everyone can join in and dance."
