MIAMI--- No in its third season, New World School of the Arts’ NWSA Repertory Dance Ensemble continues to be the opening concert for the NWSA dance season. Gracing The City of Aventura, the concert features a dynamic program with performes in the ballet, modern and hip-hop styles. This year’s performance will feature NWSA’s talented High School and College dancers performing a varied evening of choreography.
NWSA Repertory Dance Ensemble is scheduled for Wednesday, October 29 at 8:00 PM at the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center. 3385 NE 188 Street, Aventura. General admission is $12 and tickets are available by calling 1-877-311-7469 or online at www.AventuraCenter.org.
The program will include Lara Murphy’s evocative Nosotros - a romantic pas de deux set to the music of prolific Cuban composer and respected pianist Ernesto Lecuona. Darshan Bhuller’s evocative 1914 commemorates the centennial of World War I with a 15-minute abstract piece that exposes the isolation and desolation of war, while Robert Battle’s Rush Hour energizes the stage with its powerful abstraction of modern life. Kehynde Hill’s work entitled (B)ear (N)o (W)itness also explores hop-hop with an upbeat score of contemporary music and a solemn storyline. The program also features a driving contemporary work by guest choreographer Josée Garant entitled Forced Entry, as well as two ballet works - an excerpt from the upcoming Thomas Armour Youth Ballet/NWSA production of The Nutcracker and Away, a moving contemporary piece by Gerard Ebitz.
