The Dance Club of Washington College will present their annual Spring Dance Concert this week in Decker Theater of the Gibson Center for the Arts.  Performances – free to the public – will take place on Thursday, April 24 at 1:15 p.m. (in an abbreviated program designed for schools), Friday, April 25 at 7:30 p.m., and on Saturday, April 26 at 2:00 p.m.

The Dance Club, funded by the Student Government Association and run entirely by students, holds weekly technique classes in ballet, pointe, modern dance, jazz, tap, ballroom dance, lyrical, hip hop, dance conditioning, sassy jazz, and world dance forms.  Students from all majors and minors are invited to participate.  In addition, the Dance Club takes field trips to workshops, festivals, concerts and performances; presents workshops and master classes by guest teachers/artists; and twice a year hosts a Community Dance Day that invites children from kindergarten to eighth grade to participate in different styles of dance.  This spring’s Community Dance Day will be held on Saturday May 3rd, 2014 from 10:30-12:30 in the Johnson Fitness Center.

This year’s performance will feature dances designed by a corps of choreographers including:  Rachel Petrie, Carrie Hall, Chelsea Garzione, Anna Windle, Francesca DiPaula, Courtney Gowland, Kathryn Thoemke, Paula Mykytyn, Phoebe Shelor, Amanda Kloezli, Shenny Wang, Emily Harris and Rebecca DeSantis.  There will be one ten-minute intermission.

Rachel Petrie ’15 serves as the President of the Dance Club; her executive committee is Carrie Hall ’14, Paula Mykytyn ’15 and Anna Windle ’16.
