Aug. 31, 2011 - PRLog -- Terpsichore D'Amour, a dynamic new dance company formed by co-directors Grier Cooper and Mymuna D'Amour will debut Saturday, September 17, 2011 in Lake Tahoe at Trails and Vistas, a live performance and installation art hike. Cooper has been dancing for almost 40 years and has appeared worldwide with companies such as San Francisco Ballet, Miami City Ballet and Pacific Northwest Ballet. She also currently writes about dance for children and adults. Damore is a healer, energy transmitter, and mystic pole dance performer. She holds a BFA in theater and was internationally trained in martial arts. The two dancers met five years ago as teachers at their children's preschool and realized they had much in common besides motherhood... namely the love of dance.

Trails and Vistas is a wonderfully unique event that is now in its 9th year of production. The event's parameters include a policy of live music only, which lead Cooper and Damore to create a dance that incorporates dancing in silence and chanting, a new experience for both of the dancers.

Cooper and Damore formed Terpsichore D'Amour with the intention of making dance more accessible through free public performances, lectures and workshops. It is Cooper's debut as an artistic director and choreographer. “I am a better dancer now than ever before,” says Grier Cooper. “A dancer's age is far less important than their life experience, passion, dedication and confidence. The job of any dancer is to evoke a reaction while presenting their personal best efforts to the public,” she says . “Humans are redefining what it means to be 40, 50 or 60. It is our intention to do the same for dancers.” Read more about the process on her blog: http://www.griercooper.com.
