Orange Public Schools Host Winter Dance Intensive During Winter Break


ORANGE, NJ - Mr. Ronald C. Lee, Superintendent of the Orange Public School District, is pleased to welcome dancers young and old to the Orange Winter Dance Intensive, which will be held over a two-day period during Winter Break.

Several prominent Master Teachers will be on hand to work with the dancers during the Winter Intensive.  Notable instructors include Robert Alexander, Master Ballet Teacher (Ailey School, Dance Theatre of Harlem, and Harlem School of the Arts; Maleek Washington, Contemporary and Improv Movement ( Abraham in Motion); Keenan Cooks, Hip Hop (Broadway Dance Center); Joanna Numata, Hip Hop (Broadway Dance Center); and Ebony Williams, Contemporary Ballet and Audition Prep (Beyonce’s Made in America Tour, Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet). Many other top dance educators from the tri-state area will be on hand to lead dancers through classes in ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, African, musical theatre, modern, contemporary, acting for dancers and stage makeup.

 “We are exceedingly lucky to have such talented and dedicated dance instructors here to work with our young people,” stated Deborah Rembert, Coordinator of the Winter Dance Intensive and Director of the Orange Dance Conservatory. “And beyond that, I am fortunate to be able to plan these types of educational experiences for our students. At a time when arts programs are being cut and funding opportunities are not available, we are finding ways to present young people in our community with the chance to explore the art of dance. The Arts Programs in the Orange Public Schools are alive and well, and that is due to the tireless support of our Superintendent, Mr. Ronald C. Lee. We cannot thank him enough for being such an advocate of Arts Education. We owe him our gratitude, along with our new Visual and Performing Arts Supervisor, Ms. Donna Sinisgalli, who has embraced our Orange Dance Conservatory.”
