2020/2021 dance company performances
It's a different year and while the Theatres are closed, it hasn't stopped us from continuing to run our performance company. We've been working on creative ideas to create socially distanced choreography as well as innovation ways to share with an audience. We started off our year with a site-specific performance. Our dance company members worked with choreographers to create outdoor pieces. Small groups of audience members joined us on the performance day to tour to eight different locations to view the performance. It all culminated with an outdoor finale in the studio parking lot. It was a great day and exciting to be able to perform for an audience once again. We have some other creative performances in the works for the dancers and are looking forward to continuing to share the art of dance with and audience.
CHRISTMAS BY REQUEST - SATURDAY, DECEMBER 19TH 7:00PM
CHRISTMAS BY REQUEST
This year we would have performed "The Nutcracker" which is performed by the company on even years. Since it was difficult to re-imagine a virtual Nutcracker with physical distanced choreography, we came up with another idea. We invited our audience members to make requests for dances for the holiday season and "Christmas By Request" was born. The performance was filmed at The Registry Theatre in early December and will be shared virtually on Facebook on Saturday, December 19th at 7:00pm. Please join us to watch the performance and add your live reactions. Following this live viewing, the video will be made available for viewing at your leisure. We are asking audience members to book “tickets” to view the show. Although the show is being offered in a different format this year, the expenses associated with producing the show are just as high as they are in a typical year and include theatre rental, staffing, costumes and video production. To book your ticket to view the performance please visit your on-line registration portal. Once in your on-line account, click on the drop-down box (three lines in top right corner) and choose the “search on-line store” option. You will see the option to purchase “tickets” for the performance. We thank you in advance for supporting the Carousel Dance Company so that we can continue to offer unique and exciting performance opportunities for the dancers.
