ZIZ News…August 19, 2010 – A young dancer who has developed her dancing skills internationally is giving back to her fellow dancers here in St. Kitts Nevis.
As promised dancers are receiving a thrilling, engaging, muscle-working, memorable time!
The 2010 Summer Sensation Dance Workshop, which ranges from beginners to intermediate and pre-advanced-level dance participants and emerging choreographers, is being hailed as an ideal training endeavor in the arts by the participants. The 3 week session is being led by Ms. Stacey Greene, a performer and choreographer who started her dance career at the age of 17 with the CFBC Dance Ensemble. She later joined the Vivace Dance Company and has been training in the United States in New Jersey and Philadelphia PA areas in Ballet, Modern-Jazz, Hip-Hop and Gymnastics.
In continuing in her growth she has tutored both at the Fireflies Dance School and the Vivace Teen Academy and has been a guest tutor at the Children’s Dance Theatre. Her dance career so far has led her to appear in several memorable dance performances such as the renowned Ballet piece called “Don Quixote” under the tutelage of Graham Lustig, artistic director of Princeton Ballet School, New Jersey.
Week 1 kicked off on the 16th of August in the dance genre of Ballet. Emphasis has been placed on correct alignment and movement dynamics as the class is covering a wide range of ballet vocabulary, from the barre to center adagio. Participants are sure to develop a strong sense of phrasing and an awareness of ballet as a vital foundation for all forms of dance by the end of each session.
