“Under the Açaí Dreaming Tree” takes place in Brazil’s Amazon Rainforest. We explore the significance of the ancient soul of the “tree of life” and the secrets of the universe in its berries and seeds. The story is centered on two young indiginous Tupi siblings who live in the rainforest, and it explores the unique wildlife that lives in and along the Amazon River. Discover the cultural contexts of life in the Amazon through its many legends, including the pink dolphin and the jaguar. Students train daily in ballet, modern, jazz, hip hop, as well as improvisation and composition.
