Dances by Very Young Choreographers, Jan 23 at 2pm, Jan 24 at 1pm and 4pm
Dances by Very Young Choreographers is a mélange of witty and intriguing original dances created and performed by
children ages 8-18. The young choreographers have been taught and mentored by Ellen Robbins, the nationally
renowned dance educator, since they were the tender age of five. The dances are sometimes hilarious,
sometimes melancholic, but always surprising. Choreographic themes can include dramatic storylines, real-life situations,
the world at large, or may be cleverly abstract. Don't miss this opportunity to inspire your children by exposing them to live
performances created and performed by their peers.
