Annual Student Concerts

Culminating a year’s work with world-renowned dance educator and choreographer Ellen Robbins, each student creates his or her own dance solo, steeped in the unmistakable individualism that resides in every child.  Their works span a variety of theater experiences: humorous, dramatic, lyrical, minimal, abstract.  Music selections also cover a broad range from Bach to Stravinsky to Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

Each of the five unique concerts consist of solos by the students, ages 8 – 18, and the following group pieces:  Walkaround Vermeer – 6/7 at 7:30, Carnival of the Animals – 6/8 at 3pm, Garden Party & The Unanswered Question (by Anna Sokolow) – 6/8 at 7:30pm, Waterstudy & Extra Genre – 6/9 at 12pm, Rainforest & Space Fantasy – 6/9 at 4pm.

Ellen Robbins’ Annual Student Concerts are funded by Jody and John Arnhold, the W Trust and the Ellen Robbins Parents Committee Fund.

Ellen Robbins' presentation of Annual Student Concerts at New York Live Arts is made possible through New York Live Arts' Theater Access Program. The Theater Access program is a comprehensive subsidized rental program benefiting a diverse group of dance and theater companies and producing organizations.
