JCC Dance training company

Director: Esther Katz, (402) 334-6406.

The JCC Dance Training Company is  for ages 12-18 and  gives dancers the opportunity to perform and gain experience in settings other than class, recital, or competition groups. It allows dancers to refine their technique while gaining experience learning choreography and participating in the choreography process. Through performances, participants also get to share the true art and love of dance with the elderly, disabled, and the general Omaha population. We hold auditions once a year in September. For more information on the audition process, please contact Esther Katz.

JCC Dancers perform at the UNO Fall Showcase - November, 2013
The JCC Dance Training Company represented the JCC Dance Department beautifully at the UNO Fall Showcase on Sunday, November 17th. Not only did they perform like professionals, but they acted like professionals everywhere they went. Audience members and UNO performers complimented me on both their artistic and technical ability and on how mature and nice all of the girls are. I am a very proud director and we should be a very proud community!

JCC Dance Training Company Spring 2013 Concert
 

JCC Dance Training Company Keeps Busy
by Esther Katz, JCC Cultural Arts Director

The JCC Dance Training Company had a busy and exciting summer! As soon as the JCC Dance Recital was over, we began rehearsing diligently for their next show that was at an Indian Wedding. Five members wowed the audience with a Bollywood performance choreographed by me. The members who participated said it was an amazing experience.

The Dance Training Co. has also spent the summer learning more pieces, including cultural dances. One of the graduating members, Moira Delaney, not only has been trained in Ballet, Jazz and Modern at the JCC, but also has been classically trained in Japanese Fan Dancing. She shared her knowledge and although she is graduating, Moira leaves behind a piece that we will share at venues throughout the city.

The Dance Training Co. has also learned 2 new pieces for the 45 Degrees Celsius 2.0 show that is being held at Aksarben Village on Sunday, August 12 at 7:00 pm. (It is free!) After our performance last year, they specifically asked us to dance again!

Come Fall, after auditions for new members, we will be working on a piece that will be performed at the Orpheum Theater during the Omaha Performing Arts celebration of the Rite of Spring. Originally choreographed by Nijinsky, Rite of Spring has been recreated by the Joffrey Ballet and is touring this year in celebration of its 100th anniversary. Omaha Performing Arts invited the JCC Dance Training Co. to be a part of their celebration by performing on Thursday, February 28th at 7:30 pm. Once again, it is a FREE performance and we want YOU to attend!
