MIAMI--- New World School of the Arts' NWSA Repertory Dance Ensemble will launch the NWSA dance season in The City of Aventura, presenting a dynamic program performed in the ballet, modern and jazz styles. This year’s performance will feature NWSA’s talented high school and college dancers performing a varied evening of choreography.

The program will include two ballet works - an excerpt from the upcoming ThomasArmour Youth Ballet/NWSA production of The Nutcracker and Lara Murphy’s evocative contemporary ballet, Cortical Voyage. The performance will also include two works by modern dance masters: Martha Graham’s lyrical group work, Adorations, and Jose Limon’s final work, completed after his death by founding Dean of Dance Daniel Lewis, the Waldstein Sonata set to the stirring Beethoven Sonata. Finally, the evening will include two works by leading contemporary choreo graphers: recent MacArthur Award-winning choreographer Kyle Abraham’s jazz and hip-hopinfluenced work, Lily, and Darshan Singh Bhuller’s powerful work The Virgin Queen, which employs cutting edge graphic design to transport the audience to Elizabethan England.
