New Heights Dance Theater, a resident dance company of Clemens Center, is proud to produce two great productions each year. The Nutcracker in Motion and Spring Awakening.
The Nutcracker in Motion has been billed as a fast-paced, jazzed up version of the classic holiday ballet Nutcracker. New Heights Dance Theater's twist on this production will provide you with toe tapping music, elaborate costumes, and props. Talented dancers will bring with them dance variations that will include: jazz, modern, lyrical, acro, as well as traditional elements such as classic ballet and pointe. 2016's performances will be on Saturday, December 17, at the Clemens Center at 2:00 pm & 7:00 PM.
Spring Awakening - Ballet Meets Disney is a presentation/sampling of different ballet pieces featuring mostly ballet with a few character roles throughout. We hope to broaden the dancers and our audience's knowledge of some of these great classical ballet performances and inspire our dancers to want to learn more about each of these stories. We feel this is a great opportunity to expand the repertories and minds of our company dancers and introduce them to great classical ballet pieces that have been around for hundreds of years. 2016's performance will be on Saturday, April 16, at the American Legion in Elmira Heights and will showcase scenes from Cinderella and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
New Heights Dance Theater includes dancers of all ages from the Twin Tiers. They bring with them a wide variety of dance training and experiences. Each dancer is chosen for our productions through auditions open to dancers ages 6 years old and up. For more information about auditions, membership and productions, please check out our webiste pages.
2016 Spring Awakening & Nutcracker in Motion is made possible, with public funds from NYSCA's Decentralization Grant, administered by the ARTS Council of the Souther Finger Lakes.
