I'm hoping that someone who knows Elizabeth Streb's work might be able to tell me about its appropriateness for a nine-year old boy. My concerns revolve around themes that might be too sophisticated or multimedia (the description included the use of "historical footage") pieces that might be too much for my son to handle. Thank you.

I think your son will love Elizabeth Streb. My sons have loved her work since they were his age. The historical material in her current concert, which I just saw, is not too heavy. It involves some voice overs and slides to cover scene changes, which are still visible--and the set up and knock down and such will be interesting to your son, too! One of these historical figures is, for nstance, Evil Knievel (sp?!), who is shown jumping is motorcycle over things. My boys vote for her as their favorite choreographer! She is very kid friendly. Have fun! (PS There is a little bit of physics mixed in, in a very amusing way. He'll learn something...)

Thank you so much -- it sounds as though he'll love it.
