Spring Student Aerial Performance

May 19, 2017

It’s the end of the session and time for an aerial performance by the talented students of Polaris! Youth will demonstrate the many athletic tricks they’ve acquired throughout the session. Come see our hard-working students climb, swing, spin, and exhibit the balance and center they’ve developed on the trapeze and silks!

Spring Student Performance

May 20 & 21, 2017

Polaris students, ages 3 – 18, establish themselves as skilled performers through this professional production. We’re proud to showcase their talents in this energizing presentation of skill, technique, playfulness, and fun! The Polaris youth have a refreshing take on dance, and how it influences their lives. Join us for the Spring Student Performance to see for yourself!

JCO + NEO Performance

May 26 & 27, 2017

Come lose yourself in a night of dance! Join us as we celebrate our talented youth! This season’s performance includes pieces by M’Liss Quinnly, Jocelyn Edelstein and Barbara Lima. From the quirkiness of the Big Top to the voices of standing up for what you believe in, the JCO and NEO dancers will take you on a ride of wonder, determination, delight and sweetness.

JCO is Polaris Dance Theatre’s premiere pre-professional junior company. NEO is its emerging youth company. Both are led by Director, M’Liss Quinnly. JCO features PDT’s most talented students ranging in age from 13 – 18 and NEO ranges in ages 11 – 13.
