Artist-in-Residence: Fly By Night Dancers

Saturday, February 29, 2020

Children ages 5-10 and their families are invited to join us to create the Fly By Night dance troupe during this unique and interactive dance series with our inaugural artists-in-residence, Nikki Hu and Guy Van Duser.

The program will run two Saturdays a month from January-March culminating in a final performance on March 21. Participants are encouraged to attend as many sessions as possible. Learn more.

Registration for this program will open on December 15. Please register online or by calling 781-741-1405 ext. 1403.

This program has been generously funded by the Harold and Avis Goldstein Charitable Trust, and honors the memory of Dr. Jane Murphy Gaughan.


Choreographer Nikki Hu and musician Guy Van Duser are master teaching artists who are noted for bringing book subjects to life through dancing and music. Nikki likes to tell children that dancing is like "talking without words," and she regards heartfelt dancing to be a form of communication that opens the heart and uplifts the spirit. Nikki will work with children to present two dances set to Guy's original music. One is based on the Vietnamese folktale The Raven and the Starfruit, and the other on an Asian folktale about the Zodiac Animals, How Rat Became Number One.

The program will be held on two Saturdays each month January thru March from 9:00-10:30; culminating in a final performance on March 21. Registrants are encouraged to attend as many sessions as possible for the fullest experience, but we understand schedules may require participants to miss an occasional session. Registration for this program will open on December 15. Please register online or by calling 781-741-1405 ext. 1403. 

Program Dates: January 11 and 25, February 8 and 29, March 14 and 21.
