Dance Concerts to See this Holiday Season

Brant Lake Dance Camp

October’s the month to plan what Dance Company you’re going to see this Holiday Season.

As developing dancers at BLDC, we all know there are many ways to learn and grow as dancers. We always talk about watching and learning from other dancers. Since we are not physically at camp now (insert ugly crying face), there are many other amazing opportunities to learn and watch other dancers!

With the holidays right around the corner, now is the time to plan your concert dates. Buy the tickets now and get it on your Holiday calendars. For me this means my personal favorite dance performance is ready to get back on stage: The Christmas Spectacular starring The Radio City Rockettes. It’s an unbelievable show filled with beautiful lights, props, costumes, and the most talented dancers! This show has been a beloved holiday tradition for generations in NYC and my family.

Another way I see our BLDC dancers connecting to the Christmas Spectacular is the passion to try new things! This year’s show will have a few new and exciting elements added in. The director said “100 drones, representing Christmas lights, will magically surround Santa Claus on stage, forming various shapes and patterns.” How amazing?!

Now is the time to get your tickets and make that plan whether you’re an NYC Ballet Nutcracker fan, or Prefer BAM to see Mark Morris’ Hard Nut, or a Rockette’s Christmas Spectacular fan, or your favorite home city performance. If you’re in the NYC area November through December, I recommend seeing the show!
