Kids Dance returns to The Joyce Theater June 7 – 10 2018!
KIDS DANCE – The NY Times called us “a New York City Treasure” WOW! That is so cool. And we’re back with new dances to show you — and some goodies from last year too. First, our 7th and 8th grade dancers are learning APPLE PIE and our high schoolers will dance THE JIG IS UP (I hope I grow up to look like them). Also, Mr. Feld is choreographing POINTING 2 and POINTING 3 to go along with POINTING 1 he made last year. Yup, you guessed it — it’s in pointe shoes! And, IT’S THE EFFORT THAT COUNTS and MESHUGANA DANCE too. Anyway, I have to go now because I’ve used up all the alphabet letters they allow (they’re so strict.) So bye. See ya at The Joyce in June — I hope, I hope, I ho…

About Kids Dance
Kids Dance is Ballet Tech’s student performance troupe. Created in 1994, Kids Dance provides our students with the opportunity to learn choreography and develop performance skills, activities that are essential to the development of a professional dancer.

Library of Choreography
For aspiring piano students there are Bach’s two and three-part inventions and Bartok’s Mikrokosmos, both designed to develop skills and refine evolving sensibilities. With that model in mind, Ballet Tech has resolved to build a library of new choreography imagined for and designed on emerging dancers. This will be a repertory of original dances, dreamed up and composed by premiere dance makers, for fledgling dancers to hone their skills and ignite their imaginations. And, of course, intended to delight the eye and enchant the fancy of audiences of all ages.
