Women’s Stories Through Dance



a moment of quiet peace in fast paced, complex lives

Michele Green and Suzette Sherman, in collaboration with Dancetheatre David Earle, offer solos and duets that speak of maturity, friendship, loss, love, loneliness, entrapment and renewal. Performed in an intimate studio setting and followed by a casual conversation, this hour-long presentation connects audience and performers through the art of dance – a potent medium for portraying emotions, thoughts and feelings that are often left unspoken.

“The Passionate Heart event is born out of our desire to share what we find so compelling about dance, to initiate new audiences to this language of modern dance and to offer dance as the potent story telling medium that it is,” said Green who, along with Sherman, created and performs the piece. “We believe the transformative power of this art form can aid in processing emotional experiences in powerful, nonverbal ways offering healing, comfort or simply a moment of quiet peace in people’s fast paced, complex lives.”

Born and raised in Chicago, Suzette began training with Stone-Camryn School of Ballet, continuing her studies in New York City. Her career includes two years apprenticing with Winnipeg Contemporary Dancers and one year performing with Saskatchewan Dance Theatre. Suzette then joined Toronto Dance Theatre and for nineteen years toured worldwide dancing major roles. Since its inception, Suzette has been a principal dancer with Dancetheatre David Earle. A teacher throughout her career, Suzette is proud to work closely with David Earle teaching his technique and repertoire. Suzette has appeared in several film and television productions. Currently continuing teaching and performing, she is exploring a newer creative voice choreographing.

Michele’s professional dance career began with Winnipeg Contemporary Dancers (1971-73). She co-founded Saskatchewan Dance Theatre with husband, Jim Green and former teacher Lucia Pavlychenko (1973-1976). In 1980, Michele, Jim and their two children moved to Stouffville, Ontario where she opened The DanceCentre successfully teaching until retiring twenty years later. Turning her sights to writing, Michele worked for a decade as a feature writer for In The Hills magazine. In 2006 Dance Collection Danse Press published her book David Earle, A Choreographic Biography. In 2017 it was an honour to return to the studio to work with Suzette Sherman in the Guelph Dance Festival.
