On Saturday night we wrapped up the 33rd annual Sitka Fine Arts Camp. The culmination of our two week high school session was three nights of performances: Thursday night featuring a mix of jazz bass class, jazz vocals, jazz combos, and the beginning rock band; Friday night featuring ballet, modern dance, sonic boom, Shakespeare class, orchestra, and our masked theater classes; and Saturday a mix of theater (stand up comedy, advanced improv) and music (battle of the jazz bands, wind ensemble) with a hip hop theater/dance performance.
Here are some images of our ballet performance, directed by New York’s Kim Araki. Her Beginning and Intermediate/Advanced Ballet students performed two excerpts from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake and a balleticized version of the Hungarian csardas dance. She and board member Cheryl Vastola costumed the students.
