South Shore Conservatory’s (SSC) Dance Department presents its first off-campus performance on Saturday, May 6 at 2 pm at Pembroke High School, 80 Learning Lane in Pembroke. The performance includes a collaboration with SSC’s Percussion Ensemble.
The SSC Dance Spring Concert features excerpts from the ballet Copélia by Leo Delibes, danced by Primary-Ballet 5 students. The special collaborative piece will be danced by students of Ballet 4/5.
“We are very excited about this opportunity to dance out in the community,” says SSC Dance Department Chair Susie Guthro. “It will give our dancers a feel for what it’s like to dance for an audience larger than just their families.”
SSC’s Dance Department strives to provide a positive nurturing atmosphere to create an individualized experience for each dancer within the classroom setting. Whether exploring dance as recreation or wishing to pursue their training to the pre-professional level, all students are given the foundation of quality ballet training.
SSC follows the American Ballet Theatre® (ABT) National Training Curriculum, a breakthrough nine-level program that combines high quality artistic training with the basics of dancer health and child development. The ABT ®National Training Curriculum consists of a comprehensive set of age-appropriate, outcome-based guidelines
Admission to the concert is free for students under 18. Adult tickets are $12, and may be purchased at the door or by calling 781-934-2731, ext. 11.
