The highlight of the festival will be performances on a full-sized professional stage donated by the Boston Dance Alliance.  Performances will include:  

  • BoSoma Dance Company from Boston.  BoSoma will present works by co-artistic directors Katherine Hooper and Irada Djelassi.  Among the dances to be shown, Hooper will offer her piece, Tapestry, a dance which weaves fluid and sharp movements.  Djelassi will present Boxed and Reverie's Muse,an abstract piece reminiscent of daydreaming. 
  • The Lee Lund Dance Company from Milford, Connecticut.  This group is comprised of professional dancers from NYC and Connecticut.  The Lee Lund Dance Company performance will include an exhilrating performance set to Peter Gabriel's "Kiss of Life."
  • The Dance Project.  This student company showcases Mass Motion Dance teens from both Sturbridge and Boston.  The Dance Project will debut works by owner/director Terri Gordon, Irada Djelassi and Katherine Hooper. 

Mass Motion faculty will offer demo classes for children and adults all day long in Mass Motion's large main dance studio.  A special dance party for kids is planned in the rear studio.  Spend the day celebrating the art of dance!

The outdoor stage has been donated by the Boston Dance Alliance.  Proceeds from the dance festival will support the BoSoma Dance Company 2010 performance season.  Suggested donations of $5.00 are welcomed at the door to participate in all events.

Very cool!  We'll have to check it out.  Are the dance classes just for girls?  Hailey is a little young yet...I have a few toddler boys that would have fun at the dance party.
