Island Moving Co.’s Junior Company presents…
Carnival of the Animals
Sunday, February 19th
2:30 + 3:30pm
A charming work for children, choreographed by Christine Sandorfi.
America’s first Children’s Poet Laureate, Jack Prelutsky, has written funny and clever verses to accompany the composer Camille Saint-Saëns’s “The Carnival of the Animals,” and Island Moving Co.’s Junior Company, under the direction of Christine Sandorfi, has crafted a singular ballet encompasing both the words and music, inviting the dancers and audience to “tromp like an elephant, hop like a kangaroo, glide like a swan, and be creatively inspired by this joyful work.” – Judith Bachleitner, head of the music department at the prestigious Rudolf Steiner School in New York City.
Suitable for all ages!
Tickets: $5 for 1 Adult plus 1 child
$2 for each additional child
$1 off with Winter
Puerto Rican choreographer Rodney Rivera has begun a new ballet for the full company which premieres at our Opening Weekend March 3 & 4th. After just one day, we are all looking forward to hearing him talk about the work in progress at our Open Rehearsal Friday, Feb 10 at 7pm at the studio at 3 Charles Street. Please RSVP at email@example.com and bring a bottle of wine to share!
A crowd of well wishers joined us in Washington Square to hear Newport Mayor Harry Winthrop declare January 22nd Island Moving Company Day, with Clint Clemens photos as a backdrop. About 50 people joined dancers, Junior Company members and Board members in the studio for cake and Champagne. Board Chair John La Rocca and Executive Director Dominique Alfandre thanked everyone for their support and announced the purchase of the Newport Academy of Ballet by IMC, just in time for our 35th year.
