Studio 3, a professional Hamptons dance studio for children and adults, is presenting their latest production, "The Art of Dance," which is premiering Saturday, June 7, at 7 p.m. and Sunday, June 8, at 2 p.m. The show will take place at the Southampton High School Theater.

Taking inspiration from artists such as Degas, Renoir, Matisse and Banksy, each performance features choreography, costumes and music inspired by famous artwork. Choreographers Meredith and Diane Shumway, Jenna Mazanowski, Liam Gifkins and Thomas Gallo have created a recital arranged to bring artwork alive through ballet, jazz, hip-hop, contemporary and lyrical dances. According the instructors, each class and level will transform a painting or sculpture into dance.

Teacher, choreographer, and assistant director Meredith Shumway found the inspiration for the production from a recent visit to the First Center for the Visual Arts in Nashville, Tennessee. "We are going above and beyond this year because students aren't just dancing to music on a stage, they are expressing the mood, feeling, color, pattern and history of each work of art and bringing it to life," Shumway said.

You can see "The Art of Dance" on Saturday, June 7, at 7 p.m. and Sunday, June 8, at 2 p.m.

The Southampton High School is located at 141 Narrow Lane in Southampton. For more information about Studio 3, call 631-537-3008 or visit www.dancestudio3.com.

Hampton Luxury Liner
Hampton Luxury Liner was started in 2000 as a more luxurious way to travel from NYC to the Hamptons and back. The clientele quickly grew and over the years Hampton Luxury liner became the preferred method of transportation to the Hamptons and NYC for many living in NYC and the Hamptons that wanted a comfortable and affordable way to travel back and forth. In 2009, HLL was taken over by Classic Coach and things with the liner didn’t change to much for years and the owner there changed the buses to Prevost as opposed to Mercedes Setra Top Class Coaches that have always been a signature of the liner.
