ODC School Youth & Teen Program is pleased to announce its Spring Showcase featuring the premiere of In This Light, co-directed and choreographed by ODC faculty Kristin Damrow and Lindsay Leonard. In This Light shares the bill with several short works by students representing a range of classes, from hip hop to ballet, tap, and more.

Due to the number of students participating, we encourage families to limit ticket purchase to 3 per participating student, per program. Except for Program D, on Sunday at 2 PM, where more seats are available and it is appropriate to buy more tickets and invite extended family and friends.

Additional Information:

In This Light is the culmination of ODC School’s “Step Onstage” class led by Damrow and Leonard. Over the course of the past academic year, students, ages 9 to 15, have received technical and artistic training across a range of skills from dance composition and choreography to the elements of stagecraft, including lighting, costumes, props and the use of multimedia components.

In This Light documents the students’ exploration of light and time, from the sun’s first rays to evening’s dusk. “In This Light is a response to the alteration of our days during the pandemic. The cancellation of in-person classes and performances, as challenging as that was for many of us, had an upside, too. By slowing us down, and keeping us confined largely to our homes, it heightened our awareness of small details like the subtle changes of light throughout the day. In This Light is in a way a celebration of the power of attention and the joys of finding oneself attuned to the present moment.” Kristin Damrow.

The second half of the Youth & Teen Spring Showcase will include a rotating array of 18 works, each between three and five minutes in length, performed by students from other classes. Each matinee will include a different group of students.

This year’s Spring Showcase marks the first time that ODC School has joined together two events which were previously separate. The first half by the Step Onstage class is fully produced while the second half is more informal. Together, the two halves will make for one joyous celebration to the end of the school year.
