Maurice Chestnut’s “Dance Therapy”

Doors Open at 7pm

By popular demand Maurice Chestnut brings “Dance Therapy” back to Newark Symphony Hall.

Inspired by the loss of his niece in 2014, Dance Therapy is a youth movement using dance as a therapeutic method of expression with tap dance in the forefront. At 7pm, Maurice presents a groundbreaking performance with New Jersey’s up-and-coming young dancers that addresses gun violence and other social issues in a creative, artistic interpretation.

Before the performance, ages 11 and up are welcomed to join the movement during the classes from 12pm-4pm, which includes tap, Hip-Hop and Modern dance. Each type of dance will be for an hour each.
