The dance community of BSD is pleased to announce the return of the traditional Spring Show at the New England Youth Theater after two interrupted seasons! This show, titled Hold On; Let Loose brings together original works by local and guest choreographers in celebration of perseverance through trying times and is testimony to the spirit of endurance.

This show will feature more than ten artistically crafted pieces of choreography that span the stylistic spectrum from classical ballet to modern expressionism. Joyously reclaiming the healing power of dancing together, the performers combine the energies of children, teens, and multigenerational adults. This years pieces include choreography by six BSD faculty members, Rachel Hebert, Holly Johnson, Sonya Marx, Alison Mott, Nan Mann, and Bridget Struthers, and two guest choreographers, Cyndal Ellis of Vermont, and Angie Moon of New York City. This is a must see performance that promises to be uplifting and exciting, powerful and fresh.

As you may know, Brattleboro School of Dance has been providing high-quality dance instruction for the past 45 years, and has a new location at 181 Main Street in Brattleboro. Your advertisement in our program directly supports not only this production, but the BSD Scholarship Fund. This scholarship fund distributes need and merit based scholarships for students of all ages to begin or continue to dance, regardless of their ability to afford tuition.

Currently, NEYT is functioning at reduced capacity (100 seats per performance) to enable social distancing. Tickets are general admission, so if you know where you want to sit, come early!

Audience members will be required to present proof of vaccination or a statement of a negative test (within 48 hours). Masks are required for audience members.

Wonderfully generous atmosphere and all are ENTHUSIASTIC about learning more about the Art of Dance!

~Stephen Pier, Director of Dance, Hartt Conservatory

“BSD is such a treasure. I have taken countless classes there, from ballet to contemporary to Pilates. Not only do I always walk away from every class having learned something extremely valuable, but I also feel instantly welcomed into the BSD community. They have always gone above and beyond to support me as a dancer. I recommend this studio to everyone!”
