Limon Dance Co. Performance on June 27 Opens 2005 Season at Usdan Center
Festival performances are at noon at the 1,000-seat McKinley Ampitheater, part of the Center's magnificent 200-acre woodland setting at 185 Colonial Springs Road in Huntington.
Usdan Center, America's largest summer arts day camp, has introduced the visual and performing arts to more than 40,000 young people ages 6 to 18, with an alumni group that includes actress Natalie Portman, and singers Jane Monheit and Mariah Carey. This festival is one of the many ways Usdan introduces young people to the arts.
Subsequent performances include jazz singer Jane Monheit on June 28; the 2005 Yiddish Theater Festival hosted by Joanne Borts; pianist Jeffrey Siegel; "Voices From Broadway" -- singers from Broadway's "The Producers," "Beauty and the Beast," "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" and "Wicked;" and the Chicago Ballet Ensemble, featuring dancers from the Joffrey Ballet. Celebrity performances are presented for the first few weeks of the season, with student classes performing onstage during the second half.
