The 15th Annual performance of the Santa Barbara Dance Arts and Arts Mentorship Program will take place in March, showcasing the talents of the next generation of local dancers. They will be performing original pieces by professional choreographers.

This year’s production will also feature the choreography of a Santa Barbara favorite, Brittney Sandoval, as well as the work of Nika Kljun, a Los Angeles artist who recently worked with Beyonce and J-Lo.

The young student dancers range in age from 10 to 18 and receive pre-professional experience through a rigorous, mandatory schedule of rehearsals and required classes. According to Diane Mooshoolzadeh of SBSeasons, “They also sign contracts just like a working dance company. All the pieces are full of energy and emotion, as each student possesses amazing poise and athleticism. Each dance expresses something different, providing a family-friendly show that will absolutely impress!”

Opening night, March 7th, will include the performance of four separate student works in a lively competition for the Student Choreography Award and a $250 cash prize to be awarded that same evening.
