Kids' Co'Motion 2012
Thursday, July 19, 2012
Now in its 24th year, Kids’ Co’Motion brings you another inspiring dance concert starring Ames community kids. Join us this year as we explore, what else, JOBS! You’ve heard candidates, pundits and leaders gab about the loss, lack and creation of jobs. This time, students as young as 8 and as mature as 18 have composed dances about this hot button issue. Who better to give us a great perspective and a great show?
Working It! will be presented 7:30 p.m. Friday, July 27th and Saturday, July 28th at Ames City Auditorium, 6th and Clark Ave. Affordable fun for the whole family, tickets are only $5.00 for the general public, children under 12 are admitted free. Co’Motion Dance Theater will also be raffling off original Workin’ It artwork to benefit it’s Music Fund. The Music Fund supports live music for Kids' Co'Motion performances.
An innovative, fun-filled summer activity unlike any other offered to children in this area, Kids’ Co’Motion opens the door to a lifetime of love and appreciation for modern dance. Students participate in weeks of intensive workshops in composition, improvisation, modern dance technique, and how to use movement to express ideas and feelings. Each student is involved in every part of the process, so the three weeks of class, training and rehearsal culminate in a professional dance concert, rather than a dance recital. This real world performance experience expands each student’s appreciate, experience and exposer to dance as an artform.
Dancers include Mikaela Brioch, Olivia Chase, Alexandria Coffman, Gabriel Culbert, Alea Hartwigsen, Matilda Hogan, Owen Juguilon Murphy, Avery Juguilon Murphy, Cydney Krumm, Zoey Lazere, Aaron Mann, Amelia Meyer, Jeremy Meyer, Julia Meyer, Sarah Norvell, Padmashree Rajagopalan, Elizabeth Satterfield, and Sunneva Sigurdsdottir.
Working It is an inspiring concert danced and partly choreographed by modern dance students aged 8-18 under the direction of Co’Motion Dance Theater’s Valerie Williams.
