In My Own Words: L-S student performs in dance series to commemorate local dance legend, Barbara Barden

In My Own Words

In this installment of In My Own Words, Crosby Renninger talks about performing in the Barbara Barden Dance Series. 

Last month, I performed a dance piece with my dance studio, Premiere Dance Academy, at Lancaster Country Day School. Theater of the Seventh Sister (TSS) puts on the production of the Barbara Barden Dance Series in honor of Barbara Barden, who was a local actress, director, and choreographer for dance companies and schools.

Theater of the Seventh Sister puts on the production of the Barbara Barden Dance Series, to continue sharing Barbara Barden’s vision of sharing with audiences of all ages, the wonderful art of dance.

Premiere Danse Academy, as well as many other dance studios and companies, perform a piece on the night of the show. The show is about an hour long, and tickets were fifteen dollars. There are two shows, one on Saturday evening, and one on Sunday afternoon.

This year there was a great turnout. The Saturday show had more people than the Sunday show, but both had a lot of people. This is my second year performing with the Barbara Barden Dance Series, and my team and I, always love performing with TSS.

This year, we danced to "Air Raid Drill" from the Hunger Games, Mockingjay.

We did the whole dance forward, and then half way through the dance there was an explosion, and then we did the whole dance backwards. It was a really fun dance, but very difficult to learn, because once I learned the choreography forward, I had to learn it backwards.
