Now is a good time in the Charleston area to be a young person interested in dance. The options and opportunities are multiplying.
The shiny new Dance Conservatory of Charleston is up and running in a remade strip of commercial storefronts on Ashley Hall Road in West Ashley. In charge is New York City Ballet alumna Lindy Mandradjieff. She’s in good company: Colleagues include former New York City Ballet dancer Deanna McBrearty and professional dancers Lily Watkins, Monica Ball, Bo Busby, Stephen Hanna and Mara Mandradjieff.
The Dance Conservatory has been open only a few months, but its classes are filling up, probably because of the reputation of its experienced dancers-turned-teachers. Already it has been named the resident dance studio at the future Daniel Island Performing Arts Center, where McBrearty would take charge of all dance programming, including performances on two stages, master classes, family sessions, matinee performances, galas, concerts, documentary screenings and more.
