Ellen Robbins

Ellen Robbins’ Annual Student Concerts

June 8 – 9
June 8 at 2PM and 7:30 PM, June 9 at 2PM
Runtime: 1 hour and 45 mins

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 Poulenc to Lounge Lizards and beyond.
Each of the four unique concerts consist of solos by the students, ages 8 – 18, plus adult alumni and the following group pieces:

  • June 8 at 2:00 pm: 11/12 years old performing Secret Service and Rainforest
  • June 8 at 7:30 pm: teenage & alumni performing Extra Genre and new alumni works
  • June 9 at 2:00pm: 8/9 years old performing Waterstudy, and 9/10 years old performing Towel Dance
