Kick up your heels on Saturday!

A modern dance event you can bring the kids to!

The resident dance company of The Egg in Albany -- the Ellen Sinopoli Dance Company -- will offer a family-friendly and high spirited modern dance program 2 p.m. Saturday at the Taconic Hills Performing Arts Center. It's located on the Taconic Hills Central School campus, intersection of NY RT 23 & Columbia County 11A in Craryville (Columbia County). Tickets for "Mega Moves & Maxi-Motion" are only $6 for students and children, $8 for senior citizens & $12 for adults. Call 518-325-0447 for tickets and information.

Here is more info about the event from the Columbia County Council on the Arts

Artistic Director and Choreographer Ellen Sinopoli will encourage audience members to make their own interpretations of whimsical dance suites ranging from the graceful Animal Rhythms, a wonderful exploration of movements of gazelles, giraffes and gibbons to the high-flying and fearless romping energy of Coming & Going. Sound snippets of poetry, recorded voice and the delightful crossover of classical to funk to jazz music meld excitement and innovation of dance movement to visual imagery. Whether a new patron or an established soul familiar to the nuance of modern dance, Ellen Sinopoli and her dancers will artfully engage your senses with their breadth of originality, vibrant spirit and sharply defined dance athleticism. The performances and programs of the Ellen Sinopoli Dance Company are funded, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency.
