Lyndon Institute Presents the Winter Dance Recital
It is rare to find high schools that offer all four art forms – the fine arts as well as music, drama, and dance education. We are fortunate in our local communities to have the arts represented so strongly, and to kick off the winter season the LI Dance Department will warm your hearts by sharing their love of dance with you.
Thursday, November 29th, at 7:00 p.m. on the LI stage is the annual Winter Dance Recital. Around 60 LI dance students will be performing choreographies that focus on not just traditional dance forms (ballet, modern, jazz, tap) but choreographies that showcase intentional workaround compassion, personal identity, and self-expression against resistance.
Students in the LI dance program work hard not just on learning the foundations of movement, the terminology essential in the fundamental dance styles (ballet, modern and jazz), and the elements of dance (time, space, and energy), but they also have the opportunity to work with professional artists, attend professional performances, study anatomy/physiology, the history of dance, and become critical thinkers through the analysis of movement, critique, and reflection.
Dance is not just a physical exploration of movement at Lyndon Institute. In the LI dance program students develop life-long wellness and life-long skills that will enable them to grow socially, emotionally, and cognitively too. They make connections and apply learning outside the dance classroom and gain an appreciation for not only themselves but for others and the world around them through the art of dance education.
The LI dancers encourage you to come out and see their hard work on November 29th at 7:00 p.m. Admission is by donation and for more information contact Rebecca McGregor at 802-535-3636.
