On Saturday, March 3rd at 8:00pm, one will be enticed by the elegant, and gracefully artistic dance from four extremely talented dancers. There will be four ladies performing who have all won awards with the NJ State Council on the Arts Choreographic Fellowship.

One will be able to see these individuals perform their own style of dance. Nai-Ni-Chen, will be dancing a mesmerizing, and beautifully contemporary performance. This is also her fourth visit here to our college. Next in line is Carolyn Dorfman. She prides herself in reflecting her concern about the human condition through provocative and dramatic dancing. Loretta Di Bianca Fois, chooses her style of dance to represent the movement that elevates our commonplace. The last performer of the night is named Susan Thompson. Susan is a modern dancer who incorporates the art and beauty of poetry,  text, and movement into her work.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to be moved, and inspired by these energy-filled, and incredibly talented women! This spontaneous event, full of graceful elegance, and power, will leave each soul intrigued, mesmerized, and presumably open to a new way of thinking.

The Show starts on Saturday, March 3rd .

Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for those under 18, or 55 + years old.
