The Dreaming Tree
CityDance Children and Youth Concert 2011
Conservatory/Select and school dancers from CityDance Center at Strathmore will showcase the techniques they have mastered throughout the year, as well as share their artistry and talents. In The Dreaming Tree, an original story created from various legends of the Amazon Rain forest, dancers weave their way through two acts using a variety of genres -- Ballet, Modern, Jazz, Asian/Afro-fusion and Hip Hop.
The dancers journey from the peaceful dreams of the Amazon where animals become human to the modern day world where humans become creatures. The program features a variety of music including Astor Piazzola, Claude Debussy, Coldplay, Michael Jackson, Robotaki and Brazilian music from Carnival as well as Heitor Villa-Lobos. Excerpts from Paul Gordon Emerson's Jungle Books will be included. CityDance’s 2011 Children & Youth Concert is a dance production not to be missed.
Tickets on sale Monday, March 28 at 10:00 a.m. Kids ages 2 and under are $5, but must be purchased in person at the Strathmore Ticket Office.
