Firebird has a long tradition of creating original dance shows and unique choreography for our performing dance troupe, as well as for our dancers ages 3 and up. Some highlights from over the years include 2006 when, as part of our 15th Anniversary celebration, Firebird Dance Studio and Theatre premiered their unique reinvention of the classic story, Alice in Wonderland, followed by a tour to Montreal, Canada, with a performance at the prestigious Place Des Artes.
In 2007, Firebird debuted, Quintessence, a unique theatrical experience in which director Lotta Lysaya Burton created a world where Firebird dancers interacted with live performances from the world-renowned Licedei Clowns and famous Russian rock bands Ivan Kupala and Redi Elvises.
In 2008, Firebird Dance Theatre premiered Simcha, a warm and celebratory dance show, embracing Jewish heritage and family, tradition, change, and love.
In 2011, their fourth original show, Imaginarium, was born, and explored the rich and vibrant world of a vintage, travelling circus.
In 2012, as part of their 20th Anniversary Celebration, Firebird performed Best of 20, a retrospective look at their most beloved dances and shows from over the years.
Director Lotta Lysaya Burton has also created a number of beautiful, shorter dance suites, including the Rosh Hashanah Suite, Puppet Show Suite, and most recently, our namesake Firebird Suite, which premiered in 2014.
