ClassACTS! Presents ElevenPlay From Toyko

A Special Performance for School-Age Children

Beginning on January 19, 2018 with a world-class jazz player who performed with Benny Goodman, and continuing with a New York dance company that can seemingly float on air, ClassACTS! will also bring performers from the islands of Hawaii, Ireland and even Treasure Island itself, plus a company that weds contemporary performance to the technology of today — and more. By presenting performances of all stripes, each selected to excite the imagination of the young, ClassACTS! is an opportunity for children K-12 to encounter great shows up close as an extension of school curriculum. Featured in Season 11 of America's Got Talent, Japan's ElevenPlay is a dance company that incorporates advanced technologies directly into their performances, including drones, iPads, lasers and other digital technology. "The three dancers and their accompanying drones put on a mesmerizing and eerie display...The result is stunning," writes Hyperallergic. Nerdist put it simpler: "...pure talent, ingenuity, and beauty." The group performed during the opening act of Lady Gaga's 2014 world tour and the group's choreographer, Mikiko, is renowned for having choreographed for the Japanese metal group Babymetal, the girl group Sakura Gakuin, and the pop group Perfume.
