New Heights Dance Theater, a resident dance company of Clemens Center, is proud to announce a NEW PRODUCTION... Spring Awakening: A Collection of Ballet Pieces.

Spring Awakening is a presentation of several Classical 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.   2015's preformance will include pieces from Coppelia, Giselle, Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake and much more.   This year's performance is supported by a grant from the ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes.

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.

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 contact us today.
