The Montclair High School Dance Company will perform its 2013 Spring Dance Concert on March 15-17.
The annual concert features a diverse group of 50 accomplished dancers performing premieres and repertoire pieces in a wide range of dance genres, from ballet to hip hop. The show continues the established tradition of excellence in what has become the most widely attended artistic event of the Montclair High School season.
Each year, the MHS Dance Company attracts award-winning and emerging choreographers from professional and college dance companies to work with its talented students. This year, MHS dancers will set the stage on fire with works by choreographers from New York, New Jersey and Baltimore, representing FreeSpace Dance, Premiere Dance Theatre, Umoja Dance Company, Douglas Dunn & Dancers, Goucher College and Rutgers University, among others. Two pieces are choreographed by MHS DanceCo alumni, bringing their professional skills back to the community. And, for the first time, live music will accompany one of the dances.
