NJArts.net says, "...this film is quite powerful..."
In 1995, the documentary film "Ceremony For Our Time" was made at Glenfield Middle School in Montclair NJ, telling the story of professional dancers, singers and actors teaching and collaborating with students -- shaping and inspiring them, with a shared interest for the arts.
In 2013, the students of 1995 were invited back to Glenfield to imprint a life long passion for the arts with the students of today.
We are proud to introduce ‘Ceremony For This Time’, a new documentary film that highlights the strength of an arts education, using Montclairs’ own Glenfield Middle School as the landscape. We traced students from 20 years ago to present day and we see how creativity manifests meaningful connections.
The proof is evident, a performing arts education fosters fluency between each discipline. This multidimensionality builds confidence in the students that goes beyond the walls of this school. It serves them in the purpose of their lives.
