Director Ms. Warfel-Sandler of the County Prep Dance Program and the CP dance majors invite you to join us in celebrating the following news:
– May 10 & 11 at 7pm in the County Prep 407 Theatre, we present our 17th Annual Dance Concert, Memory In Motion. In creating the show, our students interviewed family members about different times in their lives, and then choreographed dances based on those memories. The show investigates the passing of time as told through modern and contemporary dance. Thursday May 10 & Friday May 11 at 7pm. Tickets: https://www.brownpap
-We are wrapping up a wildly successful first year of our Choreographers in Residence Program (CHIRP). This is a groundbreaking partnership between our dance program and the local professional dance community. We have created an exchange through which professional choreographers, chosen by application, have the opportunity to rehearse and perform in our theater, and in turn spend the semester teaching and mentoring our students. We hosted Katelyn Halpern & Dancers in the fall, and Driggs Productions/Khadija Ahmaddiya in the spring. The CHIRP program culminates with our students performing work by our Guest Artists in CP’s upcoming dance concert.
-We are thrilled to launch our brand new website, countyprepdance.org. The website was designed by senior dance intern Delana Ramos.
-Look forward to seeing more from some of County Prep’s most talented dance alumni this summer, July 12 at dusk, on Exchange Places’s Owen Grundy Pier. The performance will be a celebration of dance across generations, and will feature CP alumni, and the work of professional dancers Katelyn Halpern, Ross Sandler, Heather Warfel Sandler, and more.
