BETHLEHEM, PA– Senior dance students will be showcasing their choreography skills in the Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts’ annual Young Choreographers in Concert event taking place April 12 & 13, 2024 at the school which is located at 321 East 3rd Street in Bethlehem.

This annual concert  is the culminating event, or final exam, for the Senior Dance Composition course. Each senior student creates original choreography that is cohesively inspired by a theme of their choosing and sets their work on their peers. This year’s performance features twenty choreographers and more than 70 dancers.

This year, the students’ choreography features a wide range of themes including how the media that we consume affects our mood, how a cancer diagnosis can affect a family dynamic and how one finds joy despite a stressful situation.

Concert co-director, Amy Berry says, “YCC is an invaluable opportunity for students to find their creative selves and to see an artistic process through from conception to the stage. A physical and visual expression of the students’ inner feeling and interests that is always an exciting and entertaining surprise to watch!”

Evening performances April 12 & 13 at 7 PM, matinee performance April 13 at 2 PM.  Tickets are $6-$11 and available for purchase at CharterArts.org.
