NEW YORK CITY RHYTHM

NY street signIt is with great pride and pleasure that we bring to our stage the excitement of THE CITY THAT NEVER SLEEPS! It is the hub of cultural diversity and the hearth of creativity as people with a dream from all over the world go there to realize their potential.

Take a bite out of the ‘BIG APPLE’ with us as we transport you via subway into the concrete jungle. The hustle and bustle

The Lion King

of the streets of Manhatten will ignite your energy and capture your heart. We will go shopping on 5th Avenue and visit ‘Lady Liberty’, our great symbol of freedom. We will see street corner performers, tourists, construction workers, and enjoy the many rhythmic sounds of everyday big city life.

But a trip to New York would not be complete without a visit to Times Square and Broadway where live theater is at your fingertips! Today’s Broadway musicals dazzle with non-stop dancing, music, and energy. But the sets, costumes, songs and performers really tell the story of the passion and dedication that is beneath the surface. “Broadway Ambition” is a driving force. As we hail a taxi and purchase our tickets we will revisit some of Broadway’s best: WICKED, BARNUM, and THE LION KING. ‘The great white way’ has never been more brilliant than it is today. So get excited with us as we enter into one of the most fascinating cities in the world, NEW YORK CITY!

Wingman LogoWINGMAN FOR DANCE

We continue to promote the WINGMAN FOR DANCE core values during our January dance classes.

We will be performing various activities that will help us share our personal strengths and weaknesses in dance as well as understand the important character traits that help to make a strong dance community.

Through these activities, we hope to make our dancers become more accepting of each others strengths and weaknesses and create an atmosphere of acceptance and understanding.

We hope you ask your dancers to share the interesting activities they have taken part in this month with you.

Show Your True Colors

We want all of our dancers to show us their TRUE COLORS by wearing any SOLID color dance attire they want on the 1st-7th of each month!
