Spring Dance Concert Part 2 – REMARKABLE

Dance Concert 2014

Our Part 2 – Spring Dance Concert brought to you by Ms Lisa Clark with the assistance of her Assistant Director, sophomore Rayne Houston was remarkable! This years performance was held at a new spot Ms L Clark had secured months back, the Mist Theater located at 46 West 116th street, Harlem, NY 10026.  What a classy place it was and their assistance in ensuring our dancers were comfortable in their dressing rooms and that all logistics were in place (music, seating, lights, etc.) made our show look phenomenal – THANKS MIST THEATER!! We look forward to performing there again.

The theater was jammed packed with parents glowing with excitement from their children performing. The students worked hard to put together this show and the night went on smooth.  Families and friends were grinning from ear to ear throughout the performances.

Shout outs to Ms Lisa Clark, Rayne and the rest of the dancers who did a marvelous job that night!

Check out ALL the pictures taken this beautiful day in the gallery. Thank you to our photographer, Mr Lieberman!


Spring Dance Concert Part 1 – SENSATIONAL

Our Part 1 – Spring Dance Concert brought to you by Ms Sandi Clark was sensational! The house was packed and you could tell from all the pieces that the students came to make us proud. Sandi and Mr Sim had the opportunity to be backstage during the show. It was awesome seeing how much the students cheered each other on and how much they respect their teacher.  The students brought their best and dazzled the audience. Even with the slight rough ending, parents left the theater that night giving us a thumbs up and saying beautiful things like “Keep it up. We are with you guys. Tonight’s show was marvelous.”

AIDS Walk 2014

On Sunday, May 18th, 2014, 17 HSVD students and several friends and relatives completed the AIDS Walk NY with Mr. Rau.  Ms. Talavera did all the organizing and was with us in spirit despite a last minute emergency.  We raised $130 for AIDS research.  The weather was great, and most of us were able to stay together for the majority of the 6.2 mile walk even with huge crowds of walkers around us.  Looking forward to completing many more community service projects in the future.  Well done HSVD!


Orchestra Spring Concert was a HUGE success!

If you missed the 2014 Spring Concert, DON’T EVER MISS IT AGAIN!

Ms Cai and her orchestra performed with such class and elegance it left many wondering “how will they top that next year?”  Congratulations to all the students who performed this year.  Your hard work and commitment paid off and HSVD is proud of you.
