Manager Wins Big
Ken James, the manager of Class 5 in San Rafael, was awarded a Izzie award for Choreography for a show he created with Chris Black, The Adventures of Cunning and Guile.
Basically, the local dance scene Oscars, the Isadora Duncan Dance Awards seek to honor local dance artists and promote their visibility, primarily by acknowledging outstanding achievements within a twelve-month period of performances. Held in front of a capacity crowd at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco awards are handed out for performances, sound scores, sets and, of course, choreography.
The show which won the honors was a site specific work performed throughout the Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco in 2005 and 2006. To give an idea of who was considered for this award, the Izzies cover ballet, modern dance, ethnic dance and street dance- everyone from the SF Ballet to Soul Force Hip Hop (from 2-300 dance companies).
In case you didn’t know, Ken has been choreographing and performing for over 20 years. Check out www.ftpg.org
