Summer Session 1 Begins!





Session 1 Summer Intensives

Our Session 1 Summer Intensives finished with a bang with two beautiful showcases. Music, Theatre and Voice collaborated on a wonderful production of Alice in Wonderland, a musical with live music played by our very own music intensive students! Thank you to our amazing teachers: Mr. Ean Kessler (theatre), Ms. Anaida Carquez (voice), and Ms. Yirka Ledon, Mr. Norman Milanes, and Ms. Tania Nuñuez (music) for an incredible job this summer! Our students shined onstage thanks to your leadership and dedication to them!

Our Dance Intensive performance was yet another successful showcase of our students and teachers' incredible work this summer. In only three weeks they presented a number of pieces in a variety of styles including ballet, contemporary and musical theatre, choreographed by our amazing Ballet, Jazz and Lyrical Department Head, Ms. Danella Bedford, our wonderful ballet teacher, Dr. Kenia Garcia Cabrera, and our guest teachers, Allyn Ginns, Bibiana Pelaez, and Harmony Jackson (CEA c/o 2010.) They also presented a beautiful story ballet based on Alice in Wonderland, choreographed and staged by Ms. Danella Bedford. Thank you to our wonderful teachers for the leadership and love you give our young dancers! Their formation is impeccable thanks to you!

National Water Dance Project

On Saturday, our Senior Dance Mastery and Advanced Dance students participated in the National Water Dance Project. National Water Dance is an artist-driven collective of dancers and educators confronting critical water issues facing the United States. Dancers across the country create simultaneous, site-specific dance performances with movers of all ages and experience. Created and directed by Dale Andree, National Water Dance believes that our environment is the most pressing issue of this generation and as dancers we are using our bodies to create a community that reaches out for action.  More and See Pictures >
