Spring Dance Concert 2016


The Allegheny College Dance & Movement Studies Program will present its annual Spring Dance Concert, You Are Here, Now, in the Montgomery Performance Space at 7:30 pm on April 14, 15, and 16, 2016. This year’s concert showcases students in several styles of dance, including Ballet, Ballroom, Jazz, and Modern.

The concert is titled You Are Here, Now as part of the College’s 2016 theme, “The Year of Meadville.” The first act will pay tribute to the local area with live music directed by John Hyatt. The act closes with a collaborative choreographic effort by DMS faculty Betsy Sumerfield and Eleanor Weisman.

The second section of the concert features a reconstruction of a popular piece choreographed by Betsy Sumerfield, Between Here and There. Both dancers in the piece and the audience will be left breathless by the energy of the piece. In addition, the Ballroom III students will perform several styles of social dance.

The Spring Concert is free and open to the public, but reservations are recommended. Call the DMS office at 814-332-2813 for more information or to make a reservation.
