On Friday, May 20 and Saturday, May 21, Williston students present “Music Made Visible,” the spring dance concert, at 8:00 p.m. in the Williston Theatre.
After finishing a sold-out run of the Williston musical In the Heights, many participants in that show are dancing on and gearing up for a spectacular Dance Ensemble Spring Concert called Music Made Visible, directed by artistic director, Debra Vega.
This concert will feature the work of two local guest artists: Noel St. Jean-Chevalier and Charles Markham. Additionally, there will be six original pieces by students, including two senior solos as they dance their swan song on the Williston Stage, and the debut of a dynamic duet by an eighth-grade pair. Ms. Vega is offering three pieces this concert, including original choreography from the quintessential musical about dance, A Chorus Line, and a recreation of original Bob Fosse choreography to the big band hit “Sing Sing Sing.”
The performance will feature a range of styles, such as tap, jazz, ballet, contemporary, musical theater, and hip-hop. The Williston Dance Ensemble consists of students from both the middle school and high school, all who possess amazing sparkle and talent. Come support them as they “kick off” the end of the school year.
