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.

recap from BCPAC —-
The Pennsbury school district has long had a reputation for its stellar music program, and watching and listening to the young musicians on stage last night, it is easy to see why. Under the able batons of Director Felicia Reilly and Assistant Director Lisa Chippendale, they played with a commitment, precision, and enthusiasm that reflected both their knowledge of, and appreciation for, the music they were performing. The first half featured the string section, with works by baroque composer Arcangelo Corelli, American composer Howard Hanson, and British composer Edward Elgar. After intermission (refreshments served!) the strings were joined by the competent wind, brass, and percussion sections in performing Mozart, Rachmaninoff, and contemporary American composer Ron Nelson. The program afforded plenty of opportunities for individual musicians to shine while at the same time showing off their skill in playing as an ensemble. BCPAC is very pleased to have had the opportunity to bring these outstanding young musicians out of the high school and into the community, where they were given a rousing and well-deserved ovation. Bravo a tutti! - Lynn Fergusson
