Children's Dance Theater & Apprentice Company Concert
Sunday, June 7, 2015

KANSAS CITY, MO — City in Motion is proud to present its annual Children's Dance Theater & Apprentice Company concert at 4 p.m. at the St. Teresa's Academy Auditorium, 5600 Main St. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for students/seniors and will be available at the door.

The concert will feature "Songs for Unusual Creatures" by Andrea Skowronek choreographed for the Children's Dance Theater. "Songs for Unusual Creatures" is a suite of six dances set to music by Michael Hearst: March of the Unusual Creatures, Jesus Christ Lizard, Weddell Seal, Honey Badger, Glass Frog and Dugong. Michael Hearst's score features unusual instruments played by the League of Electronic Musical Urban Robots and the Kronos Quartet.

Dale Fellin's piece "Tyndall Effect," set to music by Paranoid Soul, was created for the Apprentice Company. Mr. Fellin choreographed movement phrases for the dancers and they completed the piece by working together to create variations, groupings and spatial patterns. Tracie Jensen assisted as rehearsal director. The Apprentice Company members named the piece "Tyndall Effect" (after physicist John Tyndall) which is defined as "the visible path of light produced by the scattering action of particles in a colloidal solution on a beam of light passed through it."

City in Motion School of Dance faculty members Stephanie Whittler (Ballet IV) and Lillian Francis (Ballet III & Jazz III) will also present pieces. Also featured will be dances choreographed by the students themselves.

The Children's Dance Theater provides an opportunity for students at the City in Motion School of Dance to work on pieces of artistic merit under the direction of professional choreographers. The Children's Dance Theater is made up of 20 members between the ages of 8 and 19 who pursue training in modern, ballet, jazz and improvisation.
