Young Audience Performances

Dance Entropy's Young Audience Performances are comprised of vibrant dances that are colorful, creative, and imaginative. Each performance includes audience participation throughout, stimulating children and/or family members to take part in the movement and be creative within their own bodies.  Dance encourages creativity, discovery and inquiry.  Children who participate in dance develop coordination, observation, co-operation, listening, and memory skills.

“A professional diversity in styles and cultures, all inter generational in appeal”

-Barbara Nelson, Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival


“It has been my pleasure to present Dance Entropy in a variety of programs and venues. None was more exciting and fun than the fabulous outdoor family dance performance Splash!. An evening of dance designed to engage and enthrall the youngest audience members, who splashed in buckets of water, performed with the dancers and generally had a ball. A sure sign that the evening was an unqualified success.”

-Vivian Charlop, Director of Performances,
Kupferberg Center for the Arts / Queens College


"Captivating, fun and entertaining Dance Entropy did the (almost) impossible by performing for children of all ages keeping them entertained and fascinated" 

-Barbara Amarantinis, New York City Parks Dept.

Each Young Audiences program is 50 minutes:

Indoor program including Chiquita Chiquita, Wild Kingdom, and Dandia

Outdoor program including Chiquita Chiquita, Dandia, and Splash!

 

dania

Dandia is the Indian folk dance named from the Hindi word for stick and is an upbeat work performed with percussive wooden sticks.

Chiquita Chiquita is a humorously, absurd performance manipulating and transforming a multiplicity of props used in unexpected ways.  This colorful work, full of surprises is accompanied by the retro-exotica lounge music.

Wild Kingdom is a nonsense amalgamation of animal behavior, movement, facial expressions, and sound. Daily life executed as a playful rite in the animal kingdom.

splash

Splash!, for outdoor performances only, is a high energy improvisation to an exciting collage of music about water.
