Raising the Barre

presented by The Performing Arts School

Our 2016-17 dance program culminates with Raising the Barre, an electrifying show directed by Roberta Mathes, Artistic Director of beyondDANCE. The performance will entertain all ages and includes classical ballet, contemporary, jazz, hip hop, tap and more.

Parents can see their children's progress, as they gain confidence and improve their dance skills. The show will feature our pre-professional dancers - some of whom take over 10 classes a week, adult dancers, whose love of dance spans decades, and our very young ones starting at ages 5 and up. 

We are excited to present an original piece by Tyce Diorio, celebrity choreographer of the hit show So You Think You Can Dance, specially choreographed for our most advanced dancers. “Tyce brought them to a new level of maturity in their dancing - drawing out emotions from them that I had never seen before,” Mathes said.

Raising the Barre will also include So Young’s Korean percussion classes, our beyondDANCE Ensemble, Competition Team and Outreach classes.
