Project Description

Celebrate Dance is a three part program we designed around three composers: Carl Orff, Debussy and Brahms with live accompaniment by Upper Valley music instructor, Victoria Dobrushina and her students.

PART 1: Jackie Stanton-Conley re-staged a contemporary ballet she originally created in 2004 for Vermont Ballet Theatre. The original, performed by only 6 dancers, was now with performed by 22 dancers. A sweet, fun-loving story line depicting a Japanese proverb: See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil.

PART 2: Dancing for Mr. Debussy: a lovely mini ballet created by Deb Young featuring students from our Primary levels through Level 1 and Teens.

PART 3: Brahms Waltz’s: a beautiful ballet choreographed by Ruth Mayer with live accompaniment. Ruth took 16 of Brahm’s Waltz’s and created short pieces for over 20 of our upper level students and adults. A truly beautiful ballet with costumes by Robina D’arcy Fox.
