This year's Spring Dances program includes a wide range of dance styles and audiences of all ages will thrill to these dances, performed by the talented young dancers of the New World Dance Ensemble, including Ohad Naharin's powerful Echad Mi Yodea, a work the world-renowned Israeli choreographer for a cast of twenty dancers. Robert Battle's lyrical work set to Bach, Overture will bring eight dancers in blue to the stage while Mark Morris's impish work Canonic ¾ Studies is by contrast light, witty and musical. Works by Miami-based professional choreographers and NWSA dance faculty members Gerard Ebitz, Peter London, and Jeffrey Lloyd Smith rounds off the concert.
