On November 3rd, Elisa Monte Dance announced that Elisa Monte will retire as the artistic director from the company that she has built, grown, and established as a beacon of modern movement overs its 34 years. Dancers, board members, and important key players in the company's history stood beside Elisa as she named Tiffany Rea-Fisher, long time dancer, Associate Artistic Director, and Director of Operations, as her successor, effective at the culmination of EMD's 35th season in the spring of 2016.

Elisa Monte Dance is delighted to be apart of the FIT exhibition Dance & Fashion, a stunning exploration of the relationship between these two embodied art forms. Organized by the museum's director, Dr. Valerie Steele, and set in a dramatic mise-en-scène created by architect Kim Ackert, the exhibition features nearly 100 dance costumes and dance-inspired fashions, ranging from the 19th century to the present, many of which have never been exhibited.
Costumes from Elisa Monte's 2007 piece, Slope of Enlightenment, designed by Calvin Klein Creative Director Francisco Costa, are on display at the exhibition.
