Mercer Dance Ensemble Creates "Poetry in Motion"
At Kelsey Theatre June 4-5


5/13/11


West Windsor, N.J. - The Mercer Dance Ensemble presents "Poetry in Motion" at Mercer County Community College's Kelsey Theatre. Performances will be held Saturday, June 4 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, June 5 at 2 p.m. Under the direction of instructor Janell Byrne, fifteen dancers will present a show that incorporates a variety of dance styles as it celebrates the body in motion. The ensemble features the college's dance students and community dancers. Kelsey Theatre is located on the college's West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.

In addition to choreography by Byrne, two dance alumni will contribute choreography. Jennifer Gladney, a dancer with the American Repertory Ballet Theatre, will choreograph two pieces, and Han Koon Oi is choreographing a piece with Asian influences. Among the dance styles are modern, classical and jazz.

Tickets are $14 for adults, $12 for seniors, and $10 for students. Tickets may be purchased online, in person at the Kelsey Theatre box office, or by phone at 609-570-3333. Free parking is available next to the theatre. Kelsey Theatre is wheelchair accessible and provides assisted listening devices upon request.

The MCCC Dance program includes the study of jazz, ballet, and modern dance styles from the fundamentals to advanced instruction. With the benefit of small classes and individualized instruction, students may earn either an A.A. degree, which prepares them for transfer as juniors into a bachelor of arts program in Dance, or an A.F.A. degree in the Performing Arts, a transfer program in which they combine conservatory training in theatre, dance and music with education in the liberal arts and sciences.

Tickets for Kelsey Theatre's Summer Series are now on sale. Offerings include "Twelfth Night," "Oklahoma!", "13 the Musical," "Forever Plaid," and "Camp Muckalucka."
