SUMMIT, NJ - East coast meets the west coast in the Hilltop City when Summit's New Jersey Dance Theatre Ensemble (NJDTE) welcomes the dancers of the Northern California Dance Conservatory (NCDC) for a weekend of collaborative master classes and performances at NJDTE April 8.. 

“We look forward to welcoming the talented dancers of NCDC to our home for this bi-coastal exchange. It’s inspiring to collaborate with a like-minded organization who shares the similar vision of providing the highest caliber of pre-professional training, access to master artists and choreographers, and performance opportunities to the next generation of dancers.” said NJDTE Artistic Director Nancy Turano said. “I am excited to have our dancers share the studio and build relationships with the phenomenal NCDC dancers, and look forward to developing this valuable bi-coastal partnership into the future. 

NCDC Artistic Director Jen Bradford agrees. “The dance world is very small, and Nancy and I feel it is important to facilitate dialogue and build relationships between young dancers that might bloom into opportunity, friendship and support,” she said.
