The 1.5 hour show will include 26 Joffrey company members performing a variety of dances — from modern and jazz, to classical ballet. The Joffrey Ballet Concert Group is under the direction of Davis Robertson, choreographer and artistic director.
In addition to a company performance, Robertson will conduct a workshop for 15 local dancers on April 30 – May 2, 2015. Dancers from the surrounding area must audition on October 4, 2014, at the Seaside Assembly Hall in order to be selected. Intermediate to advanced dancers ages 13 and up from the Northwest Florida regions can participate.
These 15 local dancers selected and trained by Robertson will perform Robertson’s work in Seaside at a later date. Robertson is planning to bring his Joffrey Ballet Concert Group dancers as demonstrators and teaching aids for the four-day workshop. Rehearsals will be conducted by Seleta Hayes Howard, Seaside Nutcracker ballet mistress and ballet teacher of the Dance Academy of Seaside Neighborhood School.
