Ellen Robbins’ 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 Saint-Saens to Varèse to Ratatat.
Each of the five unique concerts consist of solos by the students, ages 8 – 18, and the following group pieces: 6/10 at 7:30: Swatch & Unzipped, 6/11 at 3pm: Carnival of the Animals, 6/11 at 7:30pm: Reset, & Beyond Words, & The Unanswered Question (by Anna Sokolow) 6/12 at noon: Waterstudy & Rainforest, 6/12 at 4PM: Ode & Space Fantasy.
Ellen Robbins’ Annual Student Concerts are funded by Jody and John Arnhold, the W Trust and the Ellen Robbins Parents Committee Fund.
