Vicky Simegiatos Dance Company is a non-profit organization whose sole purpose is to provide cultural enrichment and education to the Brooklyn community.
We have established a Scholarship Program for talented and seriously dedicated young students who receive dance training free of charge and participate in our professional productions. Our sponsors include BACA (Brooklyn Cultural Arts Association), New York State Council of the Arts, the New York Life Foundation, Body Wrappers.
We believe that music and dance are necessary elements for a healthy and fulfilled existence. We are undertaking a unique and ambitious project every time we set out to prepare professional productions, such as the Nutcracker, Cinderella, Coppelia, the Wizard Of Oz, just to name a few. We are giving our young dancers the very rare opportunity to participate in a full length ballet on a concert stage with professional dancers, choreographers and directors in front of a live audience. It is an experience that will stay with them for the rest of their lives. It brings them the great reward of having achieved a lofty goal, having learned poise before an audience, having grasped the mathematical and spatial concepts required to learn choreography and take direction, and having applied themselves with the commitment to perfecting their craft. No matter where life takes them from here, the accomplishment of having danced in this ballet will be a powerful reference for them to call upon.
When you support our productions and our Company, you give us and our children the opportunity to experience the art of dance through professional performances, and you give our neighbors the opportunity to experience a professional ballet production right in their own community. By offering the convenience of quality productions in Brooklyn at reasonable cost, we hope to foster the appreciation of the arts in the community.
Many thanks to our Founder and Artistic Director, Vicky Simegiatos. When it seems like we are doing the impossible, she gives us the motivation we need to go right through to the finale. And thanks to Matina Simegiatos for her talent and beauty, which inspires us all.
