Maxine’s Studio of Dance presents “Mother Goose visit Storybook Land”
VINELAND — Maxine’s Studio of Dance will perform its 48th annual recital, “Mother Goose visits Storybook Land,” at 10 a.m. June 19 on an outdoor stage at 2388 N. East Ave.
This celebration of dance will have audiences tapping their feet to a variety of rhythms and styles including tap, jazz, hip-hop, modern and classical ballet.
Dancers from beginner classes to budding young professionals from the Vineland Regional Dance Company will entertain the audience by taking the audience on a nostalgic tour of our favorite nursery rhymes and fairy tale characters.
Highlights will include Little Bo Peep and Her Sheep, Jack and Jill, Three Blind Mice, Miss Muffet and a Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary finale.
“This studio strongly believes that dance recitals give students a sense and awareness that dance is a performing art. They gain balance, body awareness, self-confidence, grace and an aesthetic awareness of dance, music and the arts,” said artistic director Kimberly Chapman.
“Throughout this past year of COVID-19 shutdowns, quarantines, mask-wearing and six feet of social distancing, these young dancers have worked exceptionally hard to develop their skills, talents and art forms. . This performance is the culmination of their efforts and they deserve our utmost support, attention and praise,” said Maxine Chapman, owner and founder of the studio. “I especially want to thank my daughter, Artistic Director Kimberly Chapman, for her hard work keeping dancers safe and engaged and for her dedication to reinventing dance education in a socially distant world. I hope our community will come out and support both his efforts and these talented performers.
The current state of New Jersey’s COVID-19 safety protocols will be in place.
