The concerts will take place at 7:30 p.m. today and Saturday, and at 3 p.m. Sunday.
The college’s biennial spring dance concert features faculty works by Sarah Powell and Cathy Gamby-Weideman; in addition to guest artists’ work by Beth LaBaren-Root, director of dance at Southwestern Michigan College. Several select student and alumnus choreography will also be showcased.
Powell launched MCC’s Muskegon Dance Company in January. The 14-member company will kick off their premiere performance at home. This group of diverse movers will present contemporary works that explore elements of non-traditional partnering, improvisation and innovative movement concepts.
The concert offers authentic African movement along with live drumming; as well as contemporary jazz, hip-hop, lyrical and acrobatics throughout the performance.
Student-choreographed works for the concert created by Alivia Rutkowski, Ina Terwilliger, Michelle Thompson and Corey Christofferson. Alumnus choreographers, continuing to give back to the MCC community, include: Erin Blais, Jodi Ellinger, Rhashika Jefferson-Lewis and Mike McCullum.
General admission tickets are $5 for MCC students and $10 for the public.
