In the summer of 2008, Sidra Bell Dance New York had several successful performances at Baryshnikov Arts Center, CityParks Dance Festival and St. Marks Church. The performances featured SBDNY artists, including Roderick George (Ballett Basel), Shamel Pitts (bjm_danse), and actor Robbie Sublett. A special thanks to all that came to support our efforts!
