As the weather cools, the entertainment at Scottsdale Community College (SCC) heats up! The award-winning SCC Dance Program presents Images in Motion, at 8 p.m., Dec. 6-7, at the SCC Performing Arts Center.
The all-original works are just in time to launch the holiday season. SCC’s two resident companies and guest performers will demonstrate their artistic and physical excellence through a variety of dance styles in Images in Motion.
Instinct Dancecorps, an SCC company, will perform works by faculty member Angela Rosenkrans, as well as guest choreographers Jenny Gerena, Whitney Hancock and Aaron McGloin. Fusion Dance Ensemble, another SCC company, will perform works by faculty members Karryn Allen, Chris “IKA” Sagayo, Jennifer Rhea McKusick and Lisa Thorngren.
Audiences will also be in for a treat when Baylie MacRae, a professional guest performer, appears alongside Modazz, a guest company from Chandler High School, performing a work by Angelina Flores. Both guest performers are this year’s winners of SCC’s C2 Choreography Competition, which is designed to bring together high school, college and professional dancers.
“Attendees will experience dance in all its creative forms, from abstract thought-provoking works to dance for pure entertainment,” says Karryn Allen, Co-Director of SCC’s Dance Program. “We end our shows with a Q&A where you can ask questions of the dancers and choreographers about what you saw and leave being inspired to experience more dance in the future.”
Images in Motion is free, open to the public, and appropriate for all ages. Reservations are not required.
