Dances by Very Young Choreographers
For over 20 years, Ellen Robbins has worked with young dancers from ages 5 to 18, helping them to stretch their technical modern dance skills and their imaginations in a warm and supportive atmosphere where improvisation reigns. The works in Dances by Very Young Choreographers can be humorous, dramatic, lyrical, or abstract, but always entertaining. This showcase of young talent has become one of New York Live Arts’ most beloved community programs, and is a not to be missed opportunity to inspire children by exposing them to live performances created and performed by their peers.
