Bainbridge Dance Center’s 37th Annual Student Performance will be June 28-30, 2018 at Bainbridge Performing Arts.
Over the course of four performances, dancers age four to eighteen will be featured in short works choreographed by the BDC Faculty demonstrating student artistry and technical skill in ballet, modern, jazz and tap techniques. A celebrated island tradition since 1981, BDC’s performances showcase how young dancers develop over the course of years of training. We welcome you to join us for this celebration of the craft and artistry of dance.
Each performance will feature a new ballet by NYC-based choreographer Christopher Williams commissioned for the BDC Advanced Repertory Ballet Program: an original production of Les Sylphides. First choreographed in 1909 by Michel Fokine for the Ballet Russes with music by Frederic Chopin, Les Sylphides is a romantic reverie of sylphs dancing in the moonlight with a young poet. This ballet is in the repertory of nearly every ballet company in the world. BDC is honored to present Christopher’s unique and magical reimagining of this seminal work.
Christopher Williams, dubbed “one of the most exciting choreographic voices out there” (NY Times) and “the downtown prodigy” (The New Yorker), is a choreographer, dancer, and puppeteer who has made over thirty original and collaborative movement-based works since 1999. His work has been presented in the US, France, England, Italy, Spain, Holland, Colombia, and Russia. www.christopherwilliamsdance.org
