BRINGING BACK THE VANAVER DANCE COMPANY TO PENNSBURY
Back between the late 1990’s and over the next six years, through Pennsbury’s Community Partnerships Program, the Bucks County Performing Arts Center brought the famed Vanaver Dance & Music Company from Upstate New York to teach hundreds of Pennsbury Students dances from around the world. It was so successful, that after a Strategic Curriculum Review, Dance became part of the Physical Education Department in the District.
For the upcoming school year, we are delighted to welcome back ten dancers from the Vanaver Caravan that will present two assemblies called “World Dance & Music with the Vanaver Caravan Dancers & Musicians” on November 9, 2016 to Eleanor Roosevelt and Manor Elementary Schools in the Pennsbury School District.
Dances and songs will be a wide variety chosen from Brazil, India, US, England, Canada, China, Spain, Ireland, Bulgaria, Poland, Philippines, W. Africa and South Africa, all with live music on traditional instruments and traditional costumes.
