The Kennedy Dancers, Inc. Return to Public Performances!
Kennedy Dancers Professional Repertory Company based in Jersey City, NJ are happy to announce their return to live performances after many months of COVID-19 isolation, Zoom Classes & Performances, we are excited to once again be performing in person!
Kennedy Dancers returned to in-person rehearsals under the direction of Diane Dragone on April 13, 2021, in preparation for four live performances in Jersey City and Hudson County Parks.
The pandemic has stretched our choreographic muscles, creating some new works for the audience to enjoy including choreographies in Modern, Contemporary, Hip-Hop, and Ethnic styles in dance that will be presented in this showcase series.
Joining us on these performances are these incredibly talented and accomplished dancers. Returning to the Kennedy Dancers Repertory Company are Kathryn Reese and Eli Cano along with new members Anna Antongiorgi, Abigail Dias, and Nik Palivoda.
Additionally, members of the Award-Winning Kennedy Dancers Inner City Youth Pre-Professional Company will be performing their new choreographies. These young women and men train weekly and attend rehearsals with the professional company to enhance their development as performers and artists. They are all scholarship students.
Kennedy Dancers Summer Dancing in the Parks is choreographed by Diane Dragone, Artistic Director, with contributing choreographies by rehearsal director Kathryn Reese.
Among the choreographies is a tribute to the great Duke Ellington, featuring “Harlem Nocturne”, “In A Sentimental Mood” and “Don’t Get Around Much Anymore” with live accompaniment by Michael Browne on Guitar and Vocals.
Also featuring are additional choreographies, “Calling God”, “Not So Lovely”, and “In The Heights”, and “That’s Life.”
