Special Open House Weekend Events Included Spring Demonstration Concert
La Canada, CA: California DanceArts (http://www.caldancearts.com) began its summer with a special presentation this last weekend to the La Canada and Los Angeles communities of its annual Spring Demonstration & Concert. Students from a variety of classes at the dance school participated, demonstrating their progression during the past year. The demonstrations took place on the 17th and 18th of June at the main California DanceArts dancing studio in La Canada, CA.
“It’s a wonderful opportunity for young dancers to perform and for the parents to see how much fun the students have,” says Laura Eberhard of Sylmar, whose 12 and 7 year old daughters, Tessa and Heather, performed in the presentation and who attend the school’s dance classes for kids. “The presentation makes all us adults want to get out and start dancing too, but we just aren’t as good as the kids!”
Also at the event, California Theatrical Youth Ballet performed an excerpt from their recent concert of dances from “Paquita”, choreographed by Ms. Lynn Bryson Pittenger, formerly Principal Dancer of the New York City Ballet.
The Open House concluded with the beginning of public registration for the school’s fall season of classes, for ballet lessons and other dance programs. Registration for the fall season will continue through to the start of the school year in September.
Erin Holt, Artistic Director of California DanceArts, stated: “Each year it’s incredible to see how much these young dancers have grown. The development can be seen in their better grasp and performance of the techniques of Ballet, but more so it is clearly evident in their own artistic expression. It’s a joy to provide the guidance for them to reach it. We look forward to seeing the dancers who will be joining us in our summer programs, and we’ll of course be welcoming everyone back this Fall.”
