With an interesting afternoon in mind, Joe Cavise and his Off Center Dance Theatre (OCDT) present Dance Invitational 2015 on Saturday, March 7th at 4:30pm at the White Plains Performing Arts Center in White Plains NY. With a cast of nearly 80 dancers, including students and professionals, this performance showcases several choreographers and an array of dance styles including classical ballet, modern, contemporary, jazz and hip hop.
Youth companies sharing the stage with OCDT include Connecticut Ballet Center Students, New York City Performing Arts Center, Steffi Nossen Dance Theatre Group and STEPS Repertory Ensemble. This year’s special guests are Da’Von Doane and Ashley Murphy from The Dance Theatre of Harlem. “Dance Theatre of Harlem has achieved unprecedented success, bringing innovative and bold new forms of artistic expression to audiences in New York City, across the country and around the world.”
The members of Off Center Dance Theatre hail from all over Westchester County and have a passion to perform, but their purpose goes beyond the stage. This not for profit organization operates with duel missions; dance performance and community outreach. For 23 years, under the guidance of Mr. Cavise, OCDT members have touched thousands of lives in the tri state area via their interactive dance workshops with various organizations, including those who serve children at risk. Mr. Cavise’s career spans over 30 years including a four year run with the original Broadway cast of “CATS.” He has owned and directed Dance Cavise in Mamaroneck, NY where Off Center Dance Theater makes its home, for over 25 years.
