We are proud to present this year’s Conservatory holiday showcase, Creating the Magic, at both the CityDance Studio Theatre at Strathmore and live-streamed to your at-home screen!

Our young talents of CityDance Conservatory, Petite Conservatory, Pre-Conservatory, and Select Plus enchant audiences in an exciting program across many genres from classical ballet to hip hop and beyond!

Creating the Magic will feature repertory staged and choreographed by Ballet Master Stanislav Issaev, Artistic Director Lorraine Spiegler, CityDance Teaching Artists/Choreographers Diana Amalfitano, Keith Lamelle Thomas, Alicia Canterna, Olga Aru, Marie McNair, Monique Walker, Jenna Hide, Lara Segrillo, and Hunter Tayman. Our dancers will also present professional repertory set by international guest companies and artists, including Koresh Dance Company, PHILADANCO! Alex Neoral/Focus Cia de Danca, Elizabeth Gahl, and Ignite Artist, Robert J. Priore.

Conservatory Dancers will perform their award-winning solos from Youth America Grand Prix and New York City Dance Alliance. And in celebration of our class of 2022, we will present the solos of our fifteen graduating seniors.
