MDT will present 12 new dances at our 27th annual spring recital concert on June 15 and 16 2018; 7:30 pm at the Majestic Theatre.
With choreography by Donna Blatt Ervin , Heather Fenske and Kayleigh Ellenburg , the dances span a wide range of Modern styles, music, movement and emotion. Always on display is the talent and artistry of the Advanced Performance dancers; their explosive leaps, innovative partnering, daring balances and deep understanding of their Graham, Horton, Limon and contemporary techniques. Content of this years concert include dances that are whimsical, flowing and lyrical to ones filled with strong dynamic technique and social commentary .
Also performing are Park and Rec dancers aged 6-12, Teens Modern and our up and coming Pre Advanced Modern 4/ 5 dancers. Alumni instructors Heather and Kayleigh also will dance together along with Senior dancer Sarah McCullough in a performance on the Tiny stage; a 4×4 stage 18″ off the ground.
Our 27th concert will engage, entertain and evoke emotions both joyous and poignant.
