Performances will be held Saturday, May 18 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, May 19 at 2 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is located on Mercer's West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.
MDE will present a fast-paced modern production as dancers combine lyrical movement with impressionistic and symbolic storytelling. Contributing choreographers, including faculty members, MCCC alumni and current students, will blend their talents for a performance that will incorporate a variety of modern and international dance styles as it celebrates the body in motion.
Tickets are $16 for adults, $14 for seniors, and $12 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.
