The Woods Hole Public Library will again be hosting a summer lecture series about dance in America beginning July 16 at 7:30 PM.
The first presenter in this series will be Cara McManus. She grew up in Falmouth where she spent almost a decade dancing under the direction of Laura Sciortino at Turning Pointe Dance Studio.
She will address such subjects as her early training in Falmouth, her training as a college dance major at Fordham/Ailey, her professional dance career, her international touring experiences, and the challenges facing a modern dancer living in NYC today. She will show clips of her dancing.
The series is thanks to a generous donation from Nancy Norman Lassalle, who has devoted her life to ballet and has served on the Boards of both the School of American Ballet and the New York City Ballet. She now serves as Trustee Emerita.
The other Lassalle Dance Lectures will be July 23, August 6, and August 13. Details are available at the library’s website www.woodsholepubliclibrary.org. The talks are free and open to the public.
