More Summer Schedules, June 2017

 

Here’s a sweet deal:

An affordable, inexpensive, frugal option. Dare I even say…
“CHEAP” ballet class!

Andrew Champlin is teaching “CHEAP” Ballet class at Spectrum
Monday through Thursday, June 26th-29th 11:30 am- 1:30 pm
@ Spectrum Dance Theater

ONLY $5.00 for class! He’s from Brooklyn and Brooklyn Studios, visiting Seattle.

I have no idea what kind of ballet class he teaches.
(He seems nice & enthusiastic!)

Here’s their web site info ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

An upcoming show: Millennials by Alex Crozier

This 4/2/17 blog post doesn’t have the usual ballet class line-up.  I’m always happy to share dance-related information to support the wonderful dance community we have in Seattle.

Spring Break ballet class schedules will be coming soon!


Alex Crozier with Spectrum Dance Theatre in the NY Times

 

In support of our local dance community, check out this this upcoming performance, choreographed by Alex Crozier, a favorite ballet instructor of mine. Alex is a supportive, knowledgeable ballet instructor when he is teaching, and an amazing contemporary dancer with Spectrum Dance Theatre.  He’s a true standout performer in my opinion.  I can only imagine that he’s come up with an intriguing and unique dance performance piece. I’ll have to check it out, even though I doubt there will be much ballet involved! (I’m just a dance lover, so I’m up for anything fresh and new, as long as I can smile while watching!)

Here’s the information:

April 21 + 22, 7:30 pm
Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute
104 17th Ave. S, Seattle WA 98144
Tickets + More Event Info

“Central District Forum for Arts and Ideas proudly co-presents Millennials, a dance production co-produced, choreographed and directed by Spectrum Dance Theatre company artist, Alex Crozier. Millennials turns the microscope on cultural appropriation, pop culture, and gay culture that heavily impacts every aspect of American life today. The two act dance performance will engage audiences and encourage critical thought that will force viewers to question whether something is appropriate or simply, appropriation.”
