HTHS students dance at NYC ballet studio

HUDSON COUNTY – Zvi Gotheiner, teacher, choreographer, and artistic director of Zvi Dance Company, invited High Tech High School Dance Instructor Trista DeFilippis’ junior and senior dance majors to take part in his professional ballet class. High Tech accepts students from throughout Hudson County.
Gotheiner holds his classes at New York City Center Studios. The High Tech dance majors had the opportunity to take ballet class with Gotheiner in a professional studio roughly five times the size of the studio that they usually utilize at High Tech. DeFilippis’ students mingled with a company of professional dancers including Wendy Whelan, principal dancer with the New York City Ballet.
Gotheiner commended the dance majors on their conduct during the class. No matter the difficulty of the material, no dancer ever gave in to fatigue or disappointment.
