The Department of Dance to Present an Informal Showing

balletPlease join the department of dance for an informal performance by the Dance Composition II students.  These dance majors will be showing their final projects for the advanced composition course under the direction of assistant professor, Tracy Halloran Pearson, in preparation for Senior Seminar in the fall.   We would love to have an audience present to support their efforts.

As an added treat, the Eclectic Urban Dance Company (the student organization of the dance department) will be performing a piece choreographed by dance major, Michael Springer.

Friday, May 2 @ 11:00 a.m. in the Marygrove College Theatre.  The entire program is approximately 1 hour.  If you can’t make it for the whole showing, feel free to come and go as you please at any time during the performance.  There is no charge for admission and all are welcome.
