The Performing in NY Showcase was created in 2008 to give Kat Wildish's eclectic adult students a rare opportunity: the chance to perform real classical repertoire in a professional theater in midtown Manhattan. Held 3 weekends per year at the Ailey Citigroup Theater, the programs feature small professional troupes and open class students in other dance styles. The passionate, international cast frequently reaches over 150 artists. Kat believes every dancer deserves the chance to achieve their dreams of performance, no matter their age or level. Her open-level repertory workshop of weekly rehearsals provides top-notch insight and coaching to professional and beginner dancers alike. www.katwildishshowcase.com
