Master ballet teacher Kat Wildish presents the semi-annual Performing in NY Showcase at The Ailey Citigroup Theater August 25 & 26, 2012 with over 150 local and international dancers. The spring program features guest companies Felice Lesser Dance Theater, Ballet Neo, and Arrhythmia Dance Company, in addition to multilevel adult students from all styles of open dance classes across the city.
The three shows run Saturday at 7pm and Sunday at 3pm and 7pm.
"Our showcases continue to grow each time we have them, and this should be our best one yet," says producer Kat Wildish, Ailey Extension faculty member and former ABT and NYCB dancer. "The quality of dance is always improving and I'm thrilled to have students from Japan join us this round." Wildish invites students from The Ailey Extension to perfom alongside budding choreographers and small professional troupes. Everything from ballet to ballroom is represented, and the showcase consistently sells-out in advance.
Ms. Wildish's adult ballet students will perform an adaptation of "Les Sylphides."
Choreographers for the August Showcase are: Karen Arceneaux, Bev Brown, Tony Bradford, Vic Dimonda, Werner Figar & Shimkiri Sawian-Figar, Felice Lesser, Daniel Longo, Akemi Nakano, Erik & Anna Novoa, Susan Rosenbaum, Pavan Thimmaiah, Kate Thomas, and Kat Wildish.
