The talented dancers of City College are preparing for their Spring Faculty Dance Concert and the students and teachers couldn’t be more anxious.
Auditions took place in January and the students have been working diligently ever since.
Student Omar Hernandez stressed the hard work they have put in all semester. Rehearsals began with weekly sessions, then as the pieces progressed, the practices doubled up. Each piece is currently undergoing final preparations.
“Preparing is different for every class. We are all at different stages,” said dancer Molly McColm.
But on May 7 and 8, they will all come together on one stage to present their hard work.
Students, faculty as well as the community should mark their calendars for this concert.
“The art of dancing is inspiring to all people,” stated dancer Jennifer Schneider.
The dancers hope to spread the art into minds of others. “Each piece has its own message. It gives me chills,” McColm said shivering.
The dance pieces will feature a variety of dance styles to a variety of music styles. The costuming and the lighting will also help to add the final touches to the production.
“The show will provide plenty of entertainment,” choreographer and professor Debbie Toath-Ward commented, “The dynamic and graceful movements will have a lot of energy.”
“We express various viewpoints and communicate our world through dance,” said
Everyone is welcome to attend. Toath-Ward encourages you to support your fellow college students in the show.
The Spring Faculty Dance Concert takes place May 7 at 8 p.m. and May 8 at 2 and 8 p.m. Tickets are $15 and senior, student, and military tickets are $10.
