,, TWO-A VINEYARD GAZETTE, MARTHA'S VINEYARD, MASS. FRIDAY, JUNE 4, 2010 Pictures by Ivy Ashe GENEVIEVE HYLAND IS READY FOR HER CLOSEUP. Outer Space or Never Never Land, Dancers Ready to Take You Away From Page One-A pinkies take the spotlight, entering in the traditional corps de ballet single file, arms in first position. Some achieve this with hands extended overhead, others with hands verging over eyebrows or noses.The tiny girls line up with five in a row, two others positioning themselves several paces afield. They receive direc- tion and encouragement from Tiger Lily, Kendra Frank, 12, in the wings, exquisitely en pointe and dressed in a diaphanous blue gown with a matching blue, flapper-style headband. Ava, Sarah, Megan and Kendra all demonstrate the benefits of Ms. Vag- es's training: while the little ones were beyond adorable, these older dancers exude the grace and adroitness of true ballerinas. Kendra, by the way, is Ms. Vages's niece and has benefited from her aunt's teachings starting at the age of three. Next year, Kendra and Sarah will be heading to the most prestigious bal- let competition in America, the Youth America Grand Prix in Connecticut. Ms. Vages, who grew up in Marsh- field, trained in New York city with Alvin Alley, then went on to oversee ballet academies in Cambridge. Following her Cambridge years, she founded Cape Cod Ballet School (now under new ownership and renamed ' At!a~tic Cbast Ballet)~.iS~C~f~:~ded ':l in i986 (and continuing a~ua!!y to this .... day) to direct the second iarg~st pro- duction of The Nutcracker (after the Boston Ballet) in the region, moving the glamorous yuletide dance and play 12 years ago to Martha's Vineyard. Her weekly classes are conducted at Camp Jabberwocky in Vineyard Haven. Dancer Laura Sargent Hall also teaches budding dancers big and small -- ages 3 to 18-- at Camp Jabberwocky. Her annual Kaleidoscope Dance recital will take place on Sunday, at noon and again at 6 p.m., also at the Performing Arts Center. The program, showcasing 55 stu- dents, revolves around the topic of Outer Space in 12 Movements, featur- ing such songs as Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Stardust and Aurora Borealis. While Ms.Vages's passion is all ballet all the time, Ms. Hall favors both rood- ern dance and ballet, and her emphasis is on the joy of movement. She grew up in Needham, exiting the cradle with what we can only imagine was a Nijinsky-style leap, to dance her way through childhood. She studied all manner of dance including tap, and served as a teacher's apprentice from the age of 12 onwards. She majored in dance at New York University, then attended Antioch to garner a master's degree in dance movement therapy. Ms. Hall moved to the Vineyard in 1991, coincident with meeting her future husband, Brian Hall. She launched her teaching career on Island in 1996. The couple has two children, Ethan 11, and Grace 9, both of whom began dancing at the age of three; they each have a spot in Sunday's recital. Grace has continued with her mother's classes. Ethan is more concentrated on gymnastics, but he loves to participate in the annual event. About her many students and the up- coming show, Ms. Hall said in a phone interview this week, "We've been re- hearsing forever!" She has adored every minute of it. "Children love to dance. They love movement and they're really good at it," she said. Ms. Hall reported that her recital audiences have grown steadily, so much so that last year she transferred produc- tions from the Oak Bluffs School to the Performing Arts Center. "For the kids this is the most exciting time of the year. I feel very close to all my students." That jibed with what a proud grandma said at the Peter Pan re- hearsal: "For my two granddaughters, the excitement and nervousness are equal to what dancers feel performing on Broadway." For Vineyard junior dancers, the lights of Broadway will shine right here on the boards of the high school. Peter Pan is performed on Friday, June 4, at 6:30p.m. at the Martha's Vine- yard Regional High School Performing Arts Center. Outer Space in 12 Movements is per- formed on Sunday, June 6, at noon and at 6p.m., at the Performing Arts Center. ADELAIDE KEENE IS FRAMED IN ALIENS CHOREOGRAPHY.
