Going to London! Montclair Teens Will Perform During the Olympics

The dancers are from the DanceWorks Studios in Montclair.


Two dozen dancers from the in Montclair, now in its 14th season, have been invited to perform during the Summer Olympics in London.

Owner Kathy Costa said that 21 teens and three alumni dancers will be performing a 30-minute montage which includes pieces in modern, jazz, and ballet.

"We are scheduled to perform at The Warwick Castle and Island Park," she said, adding that the team will be in London from July 31 to Aug. 7.

The dancers have never performed overseas, Costa noted, adding that the furthest the group has traveled is to Orlando, Florida.

"We also have performed at Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall, but never overseas," she said. "For the trip, we raised money towards costuming for London ... we had a bake sale and a dance concert."

DanceWorks Studios, located at 127 Grove Street, offers dozens of classes in a wide range of dance styles.
