Performances & Beyond
NYC Ballet Experience – Students ages 14 and up that qualify will be given the opportunity to dance with the New York City Ballet at Lincoln Center. Included in the days events will be class with the company, followed by a tour of the rehearsal hall, performance hall, stage facility and costume shop. In addition students will meet a lead dancer and later watch that dancer on stage in performance.
RECITAL – June is the month of our greatest achievement. The recital is a great showcase of everything our students learn during the dance year. Unlike most recitals, our recital is more than just dance. We showcase not just our student’s dance abilities, but their acting and vocal abilities as well. It is a musical event.(See Drama Workshop Page)
