DANCE CAMP DESCRIPTION
K.S. J.A.M.M. Dance Troupe will have Dance Camp for students in Kindergarten through 8th grade during New York City Department of Education’s school breaks and summer month.

The Dance Camp is designed for students new to dance and students who’ve taken classes throughout the school year to promote physical and mental health as well as building a healthier immune system. Each session will provide students with an energetic, motivational and fun program that combines learning new choreography while working on flexibility, stretching and technique in Ballet, African & Hip Hop.

As an extension to the academic classroom, students will learn terms and techniques through lessons, demonstration and execution of choreography. Lessons are developed using the New York City Department of Education’s Blue Print curriculum, which provides a standards-based rigorous approach to teaching the arts. In addition, certified teachers will assist students with completing their school break assignment packets.

ABOUT K.S. J.A.M.M. DANCE TROUPE:
K.S. J.A.M.M. Dance Troupe was founded in 1988, at the Brooklyn Children’s Museum, by Kashani Stokley and his youth counselor Stan Morse. Mr. Morse encouraged him at the age of 12, to share his passion for dance with other youth in the community. Since then, we’ve produced 26 annual recitals, offered classes to over 600 students and have been exhibited in the Brooklyn Children’s Museum, Brooklyn Historical Society and the Society for Preservation of Weeksville and Bedford Stuyvesant’s traveling exhibit “The Crown Heights History Project” in 1994.

Our mission is to provide youth and young adults from economically disadvantaged backgrounds with a means of self-expression and self-development through exceptional dance, choreography and costuming. The Troupe’s name was established in 1994, by taking the first initial of each of the original members’ name:

K.ashani S.helly J.aphia A.frica M.alesha M.elanie

Our 10-month instructional cycle provides weekly Saturday classes in Ballet, Modern, Jazz, Tap, African and Hip Hop dance for students 3 years old through adult. By studying, creating & observing dance, students build
their technical and expressive skills. These skills help students understand the significance of dance in their own and other cultures. In August 2014, we opened a dance studio at 347 Nostrand Avenue in the Bedford Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn. We have 3-dance studios that offer children & adult classes, camps, workshops, and studio rentals for rehearsals, auditions, meetings, events and workshops.

The culmination of the year’s work is presented in an annual 2-hour recital with live musicians, professional lighting, sound, videographer and photographer. The audience consists of an average of 700 family members, friends, guests, city, state & local representatives and funders.

This (event, program, project) is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC).

Polyphony Marimba, Nick Levine, Aurora Nealand, Whiskey in my Oatmeal @ Jalopy Theatre
Jul 10 @ 12:00 am

About Polyphony Marimba Polyphony Marimba was founded in 2010 with the mission to get a large acoustic ensemble of ten players together who wanted to make a life out of the roots music of southern Africa, while contributing their own creative expression to that tradition. Peter Swing, the founder, had been teaching the marimba music of Zimbabwe for 25 years and led four previous projects doing the same thing, only part time. Polyphony would take this on the road, into the recording studio, and into the lives of as many people as possible. Swing learned that the music grows in power and higher artistic energy, the more the players put their lives into the music, and the larger the audience is that appreciates the music.

cHURCH OF MONIKA: Step up to the greatest show on the midway! @ Open Source Gallery

Join us as Cezar Del Valle, author of the Brooklyn Theatre Index Volume III, hosts the cHURCH OF MONIKA and discusses his new book about the history of theatre in Coney Island.

Cezar will discuss the concert saloons, vaudeville houses and film shows that preceded the Coney Island we know today. He will discuss not only the architecture, of which very few buildings are still extant, but the entertainment culture in Coney Island going back to the late 1800s. From the Coney Island Sideshow to entertainers like Harpo Marx, who made their debut in Coney Island, Cezar will explore forgotten and hidden aspects of Brooklyn’s history. He will also discuss how the history of the neighborhood can still be seen in surprising ways. For example, in events like the Coney Island Flicks on the Beach, one can see hints of the event’s predecessor: an open air theater that showed films at on the beach in the early 1900s.

Cezar Del Valle is an artist and freelance writer who has been involved in theatre for almost forty years. Since 1996, he has conducted a series of popular theatre talks and walks. He has written numerous articles on theatre history. The first two volumes of the index were chosen at Outstanding Book of the Year in 2010 by the Theatre Historical Society of America. Cezar’s artwork has been exhibited at galleries, museums, and art centers throughout the United States and is part of the permanent collections of the Tampa Museum and the Kinsey Institute among others.
