Ashanti Cultural Arts students take on New York for Spring Break
Submitted by Ashanti Cultural Arts
This Spring Break, Ashanti Cultural Arts Performing Group will spend a week in New York City. Our Dancers are in need of your support.
Our Performing Group consists of students who participate in two or more dance classes and who have a desire to become performers. Throughout the year the Ashanti dancers perform at festivals, events, and showcases through the Tri-County area. They must audition to become an Ashanti
Dancer, excel in school, and be a positive role models for their community.
While in New York, students will take private classes with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.. They will tour and sit in a class at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts Dance Department, sit in on a Martha Graham professional dance class, have lunch with a professional dancer, ice skating, and more. This trip will be a great experience for our dancers. It will give them an opportunity to experience the art of dance through the eyes of New York, where many developed into performers. Our dancers are ages 9 to 16, the pivotal time where young dancers transition to begin studying to become professional dancers.
In 2008, Ashanti begin this tradition; many of our dancers are now doctors, teachers, dentist, public relation Directors, part of Collegiate dance teams and even professional dancers from this experience.
