Avant garde dance troupe makes Oak Cliff home

George Quartz and Slick StockingsThis picture, shot by Advocate photo editor Danny Fulgencio in some secret second-floor stairway at the Texas Theatre, appears in the August Advocate as part of a story that profiles musician/artist George Quartz.

Pictured with Quartz are dancers Danielle Georgiou and Hillary Holsonback. The two perform with Quartz as “Slik Stockings.”

Georgiou, who is in the foreground of the photo, recently moved her dance company, DGDG: Danielle Georgiou Dance Group, to a studio on West Davis in Oak Cliff. She and Holsonback are sharing the space with their collaborator, photographer Emily Loving.

The dance company is one of six small companies that is part of the Wyly Theater’s Elevator Project. And they will perform a show there for two weeks this fall, Nov. 13-24.

Georgiou also teaches dance workshops at the Oak Cliff Cultural Center. She is the lead faculty of the dance program at Eastfield College, and she is director of the dance ensemble at the University of Texas at Arlington.

On top of all that, Georgiou also is a photographer and video artist. Her work recently was in a show called #hashtag at Women and their Work Art Gallery in Austin.
