Middlesex County College presents Dance Ensemble April 30 and May 1


The Middlesex County College Dance Ensemble will present its 15th annual spring dance concert, titled “Story Book,” on April 30 at 7 p.m. and May 1 at 2 p.m. Both performances will be held in the Performing Arts Center on the college’s Edison Campus, and are free with a suggested donation of $5 per person.

“The MCC Dance Ensemble is partaking in the Liberal Arts Festival’s theme of narratives and storytelling, told through modern dance and other genres,” said Aimee Mitacchione, artistic director of the MCC Dance Ensemble and professor of dance at the college.

Along with professional choreographer Lees Hummel are several MCC student and alumni choreographers and guest artists including Laura Buongiovanni, Tabitha Edwards, Shannon Garahn, Anna-Nicole Gracia, Rodney Green Jr., Amanda Guerra, Corinne Hughes, Sarah Hussain, Nella Iaccarino, Michael Korner, Kelli Kranick, Melissa Langholff, Katelyn McGillivary, Nikola Palivoda, Andrew Santiago and Teddi Vargas.

“The performers range from advanced dancers to absolute beginners,” Mitacchione said. “The MCC Dance Program prides itself on offering students a chance to dance who may not have otherwise been given the opportunity. We strive to provide a professional concert that will be thought-provoking and inspirational.”
