This project will also be performed in:
New York, NY
…and more (dates will be added as we go, if you know of a pediatric oncology unit in New England that we could work with, let us know and we will try to perform in that city.)
This project inspired by the fight of a local young lady, Alexis Giallella who passed away in November of 2013 after a battle with cancer is meant to raise awareness about childhood cancer in the hopes that the more awareness we raise, the more work will be done to find a cure for this terrible illness.
In addition 50% of the proceeds go to Pediatric Oncology units around New England. The more you support, the more we will be able to donate.
This will be an evening length dance work telling the story of one young girls journey. It will also take windows into the lives of other children fighting cancer and the battle that their families experience. The piece will be performed by dancers from age 10 to age 35 and will be a story of courage and tragedy.
The performance itself will raise funds for the pediatric oncology units and will be followed by a fundraiser that helps to support the dance program which will keep these young dancers doing projects like these throughout the years.
Please come to the Latchis to see us perform AND join us afterwards. Even if you can not attend, you can purchase a ticket to donate to a family (which will help us raise money for the pediatric oncology units) or simply make a donation.

IBIT Dance Company is about to open its 3rd season with an audition on September 10th. IBIT is directed by Brenda Lynn Siegel. Siegel holds a degree in dance from Hampshire College and is also the director of the Southern Vermont Dance Festival. Siegel’s has taught and shown work throughout the country. Siegel’s approach to Modern Dance technique and Composition is a deep exploration of each dancer’s individual qualities and meticulous attention to breath and body alignment. Her work is a study of social exploration and dives deeply into social and political issues that are prevalent in our society.
IBIT Dance Company has performed at the Massachusetts Dance Festival, the Rhythm Festival, Goddess Rising Festival, New England Youth Theater, East St. Dance Center in Hadley, The Dance Complex in Cambridge, The Latchis Theater, The Smith College Festival of Sound and Space, The Half Shell at Hampton Beach, The Mentor Cabaret, The Southern Vermont Dance Festival, Next Stage as well as many other exciting venues in its two short seasons.
This year the company is working in depth on a project to raise awareness and money for Childhood Cancer. Students and company members will work closely with children who have cancer and their families and will eventually perform an evening length work that gives an in depth exploration of issues that these families and children face. The piece will tour in the early winter. In addition this year dancers will perform in our annual spring tour and then follow that by working on a very project that explores Mayan Culture and closely works with an artist to create a movement experience. This season promises to be an exciting and fulfilling season for both the audience and the performers.
Auditions will be held on September 10th from 3:30pm-7:00pm:
3:45-4:30 Introductory Program
3:45-5:15 Low Intermediate/Intermediate Program
5:30-7:00 High Intermediate/Advanced Program
5:30-7:00 Company Auditions
Each year the program accepts students at all three of it’s levels, introductory, low Intermediate and Intermediate/Advanced to offer them the opportunity train with new faculty and individualized programming. This is a rigorous training program for dancers interested in Modern Dance.
The training program and company welcomes guest educators throughout the training season. The company and High Intermediate program both work closely with Donlin Foreman, veteran of the Martha Graham Company and founder of Burglisi/Foreman dance company in addition to many other dance faculty at many incredible dance schools.
The low and high intermediate/advanced level of modern and contemporary dance program will include training in Modern Dance, Contemporary Dance and Repertoire, a professional alignment assessment and some individual work when preparing for an audition or performance. In addition dancers get the opportunity to go on tour and perform frequently. Master class instruction is offered a lot throughout the season. The dancers at the highest level are also given career and education guidance as we prepare them for their next steps. All faculty have strong academic backgrounds in order to give the best guidance to move dancers forward.
The introductory program begins to introduce the dancers to a more committed dance environment. The dancers gain a grasp on breath, alignment, lifts, musicality and become ready to move into one of the more rigorous dance programs.
The goal of all three programs is to provide middle, high school, college and adult level dancers with the training and experience necessary to get into college level dance programs as well as dance companies inside and outside of college.
All dancers get to experience many of the rigors of a professional dance career in a controlled environment. The program is like a family and offers more than just a dance environment to its students..
The company has room for three more members. Members rehearse and train once per week and perform throughout New England in many area festivals and more.
In order to keep the level of the program high and pre-professional and the company to a standard appropriate for our choreography we will hold auditions and ask ALL students and company members to apply and audition. Unfortunately, there is limited space.
Please contact Brenda Lynn Siegel for more information or to find out about our upcoming performances. Our first round of auditions for this season will be held on September 10th. All applicants must register for the audition ahead of time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and filling out the application. There is no audition fee.
