The BDC community packed the house of the Symphony Space Theater for our annual Student Performance Showcase. This is a tremendous opportunity for students to work closely with our esteemed faculty of teachers and choreographers.

The Showcase featured hip hop, contemporary, theater, tap, jazz, locking, and even singing and acting. Princess Lockeroo choreographed a “Hunger Games” inspired waacking routine complete with waacking “battles” and fantastical costumes. Q Pittman created a jazz funk/hip hop piece satirizing Alvin Ailey’s renowned “Revelations.” And vocal teacher, Bettina Sheppard teamed up with theater teacher, Diana Laurenson to re-stage the original groovy Fosse choreography of Sweet Charity’s ‘The Rhythm of Life.”
Congratulations to all of the dancers and choreographers involved in this year’s Student Performance Showcase. And a big “thank you” to April Cook for organizing the whole event.
Because of the great success of the Student Performance Showcase in the Spring, BDC is thrilled to announce the launch of a second Student Performance Showcase to take place in the Fall! Stay tuned for more information!
