Anabella Lenzu in partnership with photographer Todd Carroll authored Unveiling Motion and Emotion in order to share her  techniques and journeys as a choreographer.  As a choreographer who has worked in 3 continents (South America, Europe, and North America), she has many journeys to share.  As a dancer professional for over twenty years she also has customized a technique that presently is accessed by her students and dancers at Anabella Lenzu/DanceDrama.

 

“It’s about living a life in dance, engaging with the community you live in and connecting to your neighbors as well as your students to bring out the best in them,” said Anabella Lenzu about the content of her book. The book is bilingual and was published in 2013.

She first came to NYC about 16 years ago on a student visa from Argentina to attend the Juilliard School.

Her community for the past ten years has been Williamsburg. “It’s where my kids go to school, where I rehearse, perform and teach. I developed and produced an Italian Festival for several years (I’m half Italian and speak Italian as well) with help from the Brooklyn Arts Council, bringing together the Italian community together. I also taught Argentinean Tango classes when I first moved here many years ago, ” said Lenzu.  She organized Argentinean Tango nights at Galapagos at its old location 70 N 6th St.

The Ciao Italy festival, referenced above, she produced from 2006–2010 and was held at the San Cono Association, at 231 Ainslie Street.  She has taught classes and/or performed at: SounDance, WMACC, and at The Cave.

Lenzu currently teaches Intensives Dance Workshops at Center for Performance Research, 361 Manhattan Avenue.

On November 21, Anabella Lenzu celebrated the tenth year of Anabella Lenzu/DanceDrama at Center for Performance Research. Those attending the event witnessed performances in Tango by Paloma Munoz also excerpts of choreography performed by Anabella Lenzu/DanceDrama.
