Allegheny Dance and Movement Studies Program to Hold Its Annual Holiday Concert

Allegheny College’s Dance and Movement Studies Program presents its annual holiday concert, Cookies and Milk, for families and children on Sunday, December 3. The concert has been a tradition on campus for almost 20 years. Performances are at 2 and 4 p.m. in the Montgomery Performance Space. Refreshments will be served at 3 p.m. in the Campus Center lobby.

Allegheny students from Dance and Movement Studies classes, the Jazz Dance Ensemble, and community members as well, will perform routines of various styles and topics. Some of the routines will be interactive, directed to include children in the audience.

Many people from the Meadville community as well as Allegheny students help to make the show a joyful event. This is the fifth year that local bakers from Creating Landscapes for Families will be providing the cookies served at 3 p.m. in the Campus Center lobby.

In keeping with the seasonal spirit of giving, there will be a collection box for Toys for Tots at the concert. Audience members are welcome to contribute new, unwrapped toys to be gifted to a child who might otherwise not receive holiday presents.

The concert is free and open to the public. Call the Dance and Movement Studies office (814) 332-2813 to make a reservation.
