CityDance Presents ReCreating the Magic

CityDance is recreating this year's Conservatory holiday showcase and bringing the magic to your at-home screen! ReCreating the Magic will take place over two weekends and will include online live performances and prerecorded in-studio repertory with classical works staged by our Ballet Master and new contemporary choreography by our Conservatory Artistic Director, Choreographer-in-Residence, Ignite Artists, Faculty Teaching Artists and Guests.
As a special gift to the dance community, CityDance is also premiering "Hearts on Standby", an international livestream performance in collaboration with Alex Neoral and his company Focus Cia De Dança based in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Conservatory dancers based in Maryland and the Greater Washington metropolitan area will perform virtually alongside Brazilian professional artists in this beautiful story about the reality of isolated lives during COVID-19.
In preparation for the 2021 Youth America Grand Prix (YAGP) season, the Conservatory will showcase its new YAGP program via livestream from Strathmore Music Center.
Recognizing the impact of the pandemic, and as a thank you for the support of our students and families through these most difficult of times, all performances are free of charge. We invite you to consider making a tax-deductible donation. Proceeds will support scholarships and financial aid. CityDance is a 501c3 nonprofit organization.
