McGRATHPR.com – South Shore Conservatory’s (SSC) Dance Department presents its annual off-campus performance Spring Dance Concert on Saturday, May 19 at 2 pm at Pembroke High School at 80 Learning Lane in Pembroke.
The SSC Spring Dance Concert features excerpts from the ballet Giselle by Adolf Adam and Weber’s Invitation to the Dance, danced by Primary-Ballet 5 students.
“We are thrilled to bring our students out into the community and perform in an auditorium setting,” says SSC Dance Department Chair Susie Guthro. “This is a unique performance in that it not only celebrates the achievements of our students from over the year, but it also showcases our sequential training with all of our students dancing together at times. For our younger students, it’s really quite thrilling to dance with the older girls and for our more advanced students it provides them with some perspective on just how far they have come with their dancing.”
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 SSC’s Spring Dance 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.
