Dancing Arts Center Celebrates Spring

by Karyn Edison

The Dancing Arts Center’s Ensemble cast represented the dance school by participating in the Children’s Dance Festival this month at the Boston Ballet.

The cast, which includes Nicoletta Agostino, Zoë Bangert, Jenna Calabrese, Emma Joaquin, Elizabeth Kantrowitz, Sara Knapp, Adela Lin, Amelia Noreau, Ariel Ott, and Noelle Ott, performed variations from La Bayadere, restaged after Marius Petipa by DAC ballet staff Patrick Notaro and Gregg Saulnier.

“Performing at the Children’s Dance Festival has become a welcomed tradition for both organizations,” says DAC Director Karyn Edison. “Along with an opportunity to strengthen our reputation of developing highly skilled dancers while presenting tasteful choreography and costumes, the Children’s Dance Festival gives us a chance to further our mission of raising the level of artistry through exchange and presentation.”

The Children's Dance Festival provides a day of dance for dancers ages 6-18 through dance groups of all techniques and cultures, including a workshop of different dance styles and a gala performance.

About the Dancing Arts Center:
The Dancing Arts Center, located in Holliston, Massachusetts, provides instruction in
classical ballet, modern dance, improvisation, character, hip hop, pointe, pas de deux, and choreography, and offers a variety of other performance-related classes through the year.  DAC’s teaching foundation is based on the philosophy that good dance training awakens the senses and stimulates emotional, physical, and intellectual growth. It believes in nurturing each student’s desires, and enhancing their love of dance, through creative expression, exploration, and discovery.

Its small class size fosters careful, and progressive development of each student’s artistry. For more information about the Dancing Arts Center (dance school), Dancing Arts Academy (academic and dance day school) or the Dancing Arts Ensemble (not-for-profit performing company),
