Sahara Dance Mini-Moon
To dance is to be out of yourself, larger, more powerful, more beautiful.
This is power, it is glory on earth and it is yours for the taking.
~ Agnes de Mille ~
Saturday, April 17 – Friday, May 21, 2021
Sign up for spring dance training and perform in Sahara Dance Mini Moon! Let’s commemorate a year of dance together at home with a gala show and community events.
Learn a choreography in live-streaming classes (or through class recordings) and practice at home as much as you like with the videos. Be part of the Mini Moon Google Groups and events to build community in preparation for our dance goals.
Performers will submit two videos:
1. A dress rehearsal video to receive private, individualized teacher feedback for your personalized dance growth (due May 8)
2. A final performance video for inclusion in the show (due May 22)
Celebrate as we debut the completed choreography montages at Sahara Dance Mini Moon on June 5th at 7:00 pm EST, live-streaming on Zoom.
Dancers are welcome to enjoy performance classes and opt-out of submitting videos.
