The New Victory Theater in New York will present its third season of Victory Dance this July, a three-week-long series of dance performances for kids in the city's day camps, school and youth programs.
Victory Dance will run July 13-29 featuring a host of different companies and dance styles, from lyrical, to tap to animé-inspired movement. Students attend daytime performances free of charge and also receive free dance-related workshops led by professional teaching artists before and after their visits.
The initiative is aimed at inspiring young people to embrace dance. Every performance will feature a 90-minute program of three dance pieces and conclude with a discussion led by a New Victory teaching artist. Between each dance, the teaching artist will share details about the company, choreographer or the dance, with the children.
The series will feature performances by doug elkins choreography, etc.; David Neumann / Advanced Beginner Group; Big Dance Theater; Limón Dance Company; Lar Lubovitch Dance Company; Jiva Dance; Camille A. Brown & Dancers; Nadine Bommer Dance Company; and American Tap Dance Foundation.
