Dear Ladies and Gentlemen!
Our school is actively engaged in concert performances. In recent years, four big dancing shows united by one theme have been arranged: “The Melodies of My Grandmother’s Treasure Chest.”
The language of dance tells a fantastic story of how in an old attic, a grandson finds a hope chest of his long departed grandmother. From this magical discovery is born favorite melodies from the grandmother’s youngest years. Within these melodies, our dancers bring to live the joy and excitement of each ballad.
With each show, the grandmother’s favorite melodies are from a different time and place: the first big show was – the Russian (2015), in the second – the American (2016), in the third – the Jew (2017), in the fourth – the Ukrainian (2018).
In 2019, we will create “THE CHOSEN DANCES of the CHOREOGRAPHER ROMAN MAZUR.” This international program will showcase dancers from many different nations bringing the spirit of tradition to the stage. Do not miss these wonderful and unusual performances!
From more than one hundred beautifully choreographed dances, only 25 were selected and were presented to audience on Sunday, June 23rd, 2019.
We will be finishing off 2019 with the big dance show “Theater of Dance”. Like theater performances that have story, time and place – many dances in our upcoming show will also have story, time and place. These dances are based on popular classical and folk music or popular songs. Half a century ago legendary theater director Georgy Tovstonogov in Saint Petersburg staged performance Visible Song, where story line of popular songs was strengthen by theater play. We will try to achieve the same, but with the help of dance.
Our last performance of 2019 will take place on December 15 2019 at 7p.m. in Northbrook Theater. With great pleasure we are eager to invite you, our viewer, to this celebration of dance.
