About this show

Eleo Pomare's masterpiece, Las Desenamoradas, will be performed as part of the Spring Dance Concert presented by Hofstra University's Dance Program. The dance has been reconstructed by Professors Dyane Harvey-Salaam (winner of a 2017 Bessie Award) and Robin Becker, longtime members of the Eleo Pomare Dance Company, who performed the piece themselves over the course of more than a decade.

Hofstra's Department of Drama and Dance is supporting the preservation of Las Desenamoradas by having it documented in Labanotation in coordination with the Dance Notation Bureau, directed by Lynne Weber. Reconstructing this work for a new generation of dancers, while preserving its movements for future young artists, is a way for Harvey-Salaam and Becker to honor the artist who had a profound influence in their successful careers.
