County Prep Dance teacher Heather Warfel Sandler is one of 21 choreographers selected to present original work as part of the Fifth Annual Your Move Modern Dance Festival. The festival seeks to highlight the modern dance scene in Jersey City and beyond. Ms.Warfel Sandler will present a duet choreographed in collaboration with her husband, Ross Sandler. Ms.Warfel Sandler says, “As an active member of the Jersey City arts community, I’m honored and excited to participate in this performance, alongside both experienced and up-and-coming choreographers. I’m grateful to HCST for supporting and encouraging the continuation of my professional career as a dancer and choreographer. It will be a special experience to discuss the performance and my creative process with my students, and for them to see that process come to fruition in a professional production.” The festival is co-founded and produced by Meagan Woods, a graduate of the Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers, and recently appointed dance consultant at County Prep. “Heather’s created a new piece set to Motown music that will highlight DeBaun’s ornate curtain and proscenium stage,” said Woods in an interview with nj.com. “She’s a staple in the Jersey City dance community. We look forward to what her witty choreography will bring to the festival.” See full article below.
