MCC Dance Ensemble to Perform April 15 & 16
The College Dance Ensemble will present its 10th Anniversary Spring Dance Concert entitled "Celebration" on Friday and Saturday, April 15 and 16. The concerts will be held in the Performing Arts Center at 7 p.m. and are free.
"The MCC Ensemble is celebrating 10 wonderful years of dance," said Aimee Mitacchione, the artistic director and choreographer. "Traditionally, our performances are modern dance-based. This year, we are marking the anniversary by presenting culturally diverse movement genres and dances that have a celebratory theme.
"Our dancers have formed tight knit relationships over the years, created many special bonds, and made unforgettable memories. Many alumni return to choreograph and perform year after year. We are also honored this year to have a professional choreographer, Lees Hummel, the education director for the new Lustig Dance Theatre."
Student choreographers include Malcolm Fields, Jillian Madorma, Megan Ehnat, Tabitha Edwards, German Mayorga, Melanie Belonis and Anjelica Roman. Alumni choreographers include Lindsey Jordon, Raven Dunbar, Alicia Pagan and Kelly Farley.
"Our dancers range from advanced professionals in the field to absolute beginners," Professor Mitacchione said. "We all work together to provide a professional concert that will be enjoyable and extremely enriching."
