This National Dance Day, September 17, kids can take an enchanting trip across the globe to celebrate movement, music, and the planet we call home.
‘To Sail Around the Sun,” a catered-to-kids production from Company E, DC’s leading contemporary repertory dance company, is returning to the Kennedy Center Family Theatre. Through dance, live music, and storytelling, the performance takes audiences on one child’s journey to gather all four seasons before dinner time. The show travels beneath the springtime waves of the Australian shores, through the summertime rainforests of Argentina, among the autumn leaves of Japan, and in the wintry snows of Kazakhstan.
Designed for families and children of all ages, the story unfolds through a mesmerizing performance by Company E dancers alongside live string quartet, Sound Impact. It’s all fittingly set to Antonio Vivaldi’s “The Four Seasons” with a one-hour run time, ideal for young audiences.
There will be two performances of “To Sail Around the Sun” on September 17, at 11am and 2pm. Tickets are $30 and available for purchase through the Kennedy Center website.
