North Shore Civic Ballet To Perform CELESTE In '12 Dancers Dancing...A Christmas In Cambridge' At The Dance Complex
Enjoy the holiday season in a festive atmosphere of dance and merry making. The North Shore Civic Ballet (NSCB) returns for a third year to present new work in the annual "12 Dancers Dancing...A Christmas in Cambridge".
The holiday concert begins on Saturday, December 8 at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday, December 9 at 7:00 p.m. at the Dance Complex Julie Ince Thompson Theatre, located at 536 Massachusetts Avenue in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in the Central Square. The program features new dance pieces presented by 14 area Boston dance companies performing holiday inspired pieces. Original choreography and an array of dance styles and inspirational work are shown.
Tickets, adults for $23 and seniors and children for $16, may be purchased at https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3163799. Bring a new toy to donate for children serviced by RESPOND Inc.-Working to End Domestic Violence and receive $1.00 off the admission.
Under Artistic Director Paula K. Shiff, the NSCB, a 44-year-old nonprofit organization based at the Marblehead School of Ballet (MSB) in Marblehead, Massachusetts, premieres the original work, Celeste, choreographed by Ivan Korn. The piece, inspired by Radio Tarifa's music, revolves around a summertime landscape, where time expands due to the length of the day. Its impending end triggers a sense of anticipation. The North Shore Civic Ballet's dancers, Christine DeSalvo and Alex Berg, will perform the new work.
The NSCB welcomes the opportunity to appear again in this holiday program. "We are delighted to perform again in this festive event and collaborate and perform with other companies in the Boston area," said Shiff.
