"Let's Step Out" Bayshore Academy of Dance Presents its 33rd Annual Dance Concert
“And up with the curtain!” Bayshore Academy of Dance will hold its 33rd annual dance concert, Saturday, June 2nd at Matawan High School; 2:30pm & 7:30pm.
This is not your cookie–cutter dance recital. Our recital is performed as a professional show, full of entertaining and story-telling dances. The first act consists of various styles of dance numbers from ballet, tap, jazz, pointe, hip hop, modern, Irish, belly dancing and more. It also features an original ballet production, “Life in Change,” performed by the Ballet Ensemble classes.
The second act features the Musical Comedy students performing a capsule version of the musical, “Anything Goes.” It is a character portrayal of the Broadway Show acted out through dance. It is staged, choreographed and directed by owner, Lynn Scheps.
Owner and Director Lynn Scheps has been teaching dance for 48 years. She opened Bayshore Academy of Dance in Hazlet, 1979, relocating it to Holmdel in 1997. Lynn studied in New York City with master teachers: Charles Kelly, Luigi, Phil Black, and Don Farnsworth. Lynn has a Bachelor’s of Arts Degree in Elementary Education and a minor in drama from Farleigh Dickinson University. She was an adjunct theater/dance professor at Brookdale Community College.
Lynn’s philosophy on teaching is that dance is for a lifetime. Not only does she teach steps, but teaches the history behind the music she uses. Lynn encourages her students to attend live theatre and ballet, whether it is a school show, community theatre production, touring company or a Broadway show. Through these experiences, the students gain knowledge of the way dance should look like.
