Lydia Sakolsky-Basquill was born in Rochester, NY into a military family. After settling in Boise, ID she pusued her love of dance, eventually graduating with an AA in Dance Performance from New World School of the Arts in Miami, FL. Lydia continued her studies to pursue a BFA in Dance Performance at Arizona State University and at the San Francisco Conservatory of Dance. Lydia relocated back to Boise and is happy to be dancing and creating work for Ballet Idaho, the Boise Dance Co-op, Idaho Dance Theatre, Treefort Music Festival, and various studios throughout Idaho. In 2013, Lydia launched Project Flux Dance, which has since established itself with commissioned works in the Boise dance community.



WHYTEBERG is a Los Angeles based duo created by Gracie Whyte (an Idaho native) and Laura Berg as a platform for their collaborative work. Since their inception in August 2014, WHYTEBERG has performed at numerous venues around Los Angeles and teaches their groovy and sweat-inducing floorwork technique class to professionals. Gracie and Laura are most interested in figuring out how to blend disciplines, integrating dance into other genres to elevate the level of art being created.

We just want to know: how do you make people like dance?
