Donna Salgado (above) took her troupe Continuum Contemporary/Ballet to Jacob's Pillow on August 25th for an Inside/Out performance. I met Donna and some of her dancers earlier this summer when they were preparing for the Latin Choreographers Festival. On Monday August 22nd, photographer Matt Murphy and I went to the DANY Studios to watch the Company rehearsing for their Pillow appearance. The work being performed is Donna's setting of THE FOUR SEASONS to the familiar Antonio Vivaldi score.
This ballet calls for a large ensemble so there were some new (to me) faces in the studio. Above: the women included Cassandra Coulas, Virginia Horne, Kate Loh, Sarah Atkins, Ashly Noel and Donna herself.
Here is a galllery of Matt's photographs from the rehearsal:

I was so lucky to catch Matt with a free hour in his schedule and he produced these images with his usual sureness of eye before rushing off to another shoot.
