Modern Motion Dance School will present its 6th annual dance show entitled "Stars of Tomorrow" on Saturday, June 13, 2015 at 2PM at Franklin Middle School. The show will feature children ages 3-18 performing dances in ballet, contemporary, hip hop, jazz and tap dance styles. This year's show will be the first time the school includes hip hop in their performance; the school's hip hop program began in September 2014.
As a special treat, beginner level hip hop dancers will be performing to "The Wizard In Me" a song by local Franklin rapper Substance. Substance, most known for her anti-bullying program, was delighted to share her music with the children of Modern Motion. The song, "The Wizard in Me" is an anti-bully hip-hop anthem written by Substance and performed by her and onstage partner, Ryan "B-Boy Loose Goose" Armstrong of Princeton, both of whom said they were bullied when they were in middle school. Their mutual experiences led to the transformation of "The Wizard in Me" from a video to an interactive assembly program. You can read more about The Wizard in Me assembly program here.
"The theme "Stars of Tomorrow" represents our long term goals for all the students in our program" says Ginger Haithcox, the school's director. "While only 1% of most dance students go on to professional dance careers, the values, discipline, hard work, team collaboration, and focus prepare children to be successful in whatever career they choose down the road." "My wish for all of our wonderful dancers is that they take what they've learned here and translate it to other areas of life: from trying out new and challenging choreography to learning to try new things and learning that hard work and repetition can yield great results if you stay the course and don't give up."
Tickets for the show are $13 in advance and $16 at the door. Call the school at 732-658-0301 for more information.
