Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College continues its 2016-17 family series on Saturday, February 11, 2017 at 2pm with Treehouse Shakers’ production of the original dance-play, Coyote’s Dance.

The production is recommended for ages four to ten. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at BrooklynCenter.org or by calling the box office at 718-951-4500 (Tue-Sat, 1pm-6pm).
About Coyote’s Dance
Written and choreographed by Treehouse Shakers’ co-founders Mara McEwin and Emily Bunning, with music by award-winning musicians Roderick Jackson and the First Women’s Nation a cappella group, Ulali, Coyote’s Dance envelops the culture and story of Coyote, whose exploits are recounted among many North American Indian Nations. Audiences follow Coyote as he humorously tries to turn himself blue with the help of a songbird, outwit a sly and handsome Fox for his eagle feathered-robe, and dances with the mesmerizing stars in the universe. The set, compiled of several trampolines, keeps audiences thoroughly awe-struck as Coyote and friends fly, jump and dance through the air. The engaging contemporary dance, live music, and beautiful costumes will have even the youngest of audience members dancing and laughing in their seats. The performance runs 45 minutes with no intermission and is recommended for children ages four and up.
