Join Us in Congratulating Judith Molina and the Students of IMD

Please join us in congratulating Judith Molina, Director of the Institute for Music and Dance, for the outstanding Student Dance Concert that she was responsible for this past weekend. At the Sunday afternoon performance, Marygrove’s Theatre was completely full, with standing room only, as the K-12 students performed in the program entitled “Back to the 80’s/Back to the Future.”

The program included 29 different dance routines featuring ballet, modern, tap, and jazz.  The energy and dynamism in the Theatre was palpable and the performances were deserving of the tremendous applause from the audience.

Many thanks to Judith and her administrative and production staff for all the hard work that was involved in teaching these students and in preparing them for a truly wonderful performance.

The Institute of Music and Dance—whose membership includes Detroit-area middle and high school students, as well as Marygrove College alumni—continues to astonish us with their talent and ability to move listeners through the universal language of music.

This video features musician Sonja Allen, who began her studies at IMD when she was in kindergarten!

Now a senior in high school, Sonja graced the stage on May 27 to perform the first movement of the Mendelssohn violin concerto.
