The Power of Dance

By July 3, 2019 July 5th, 2019 No Comments

On Saturday, June 15 at Hoosick Falls Central School, Hubbard Hall celebrated our Annual Dance Showcase, featuring dozens of young dancers who have studied dance with us this season.

        

From ages 5 to 55, these kids studied Hip Hop, Ballet, Bollywood, Irish and African Dance with our expert faculty, and did amazing work in the showcase. They worked hard from September until June towards this concert and it really paid off. Gina Deibel teaches our Bollywood classes, Darcy May teaches Irish Dance, Lindsay Shaner teaches Hip Hop and Modern, Carman Bogle and Elizabeth Call teach Ballet and Lulwama Mulalu teaches African Dance.

We can probably all remember moments in our youth when we did something challenging for the first time – ran a race, played a ball game, performed in a play or danced a dance – and felt ourselves grow as individuals. We felt a little bigger after that day and knew we could do more. I’m so proud of all these kids and want to recognize each and every one of them. Bravo! Here’s a list of all of our featured dances and dancers from this amazing concert.
