DIANE AND DANCE: Diane Von Furstenberg continued supporting the arts Thursday night by hosting an intimate gathering at her West Village headquarters to preview "Forward," the latest piece by the contemporary dance company danielandsomesuperfriends. According to Daniel Wilkins, who founded the dance troupe two years ago, the performance investigates the limits of physical architecture, athleticism and agility through techniques from ballet and modern dance. "Diane’s studio is like an empty palette and an ideal location for what we do artistically," said Wilkins. It is the third piece the group has performed at Von Furstenberg’s and it includes 19 numbers performed by six dancers. "Forward" opens to the public tonight and runs through Saturday with shows beginning at 8 p.m. at Diane Von Furstenberg The Theater. Tickets are $15 and available at the door.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
