Jazz techniques class presents year-end dance concert

Jackson Community College will host a free dance demonstration and concert performed by dance students at 3 p.m. Sunday, May 2 in the Michael Baughman Theatre, Potter Center.

The production features 16 dancers from JCC’s jazz techniques dance class, who come with different levels of experience. Dancers learn to work collaboratively together as they gain new technical skills and explore their own original movement styles. 

“We want to help our community understand how jazz dances are designed, about the history of jazz dance and its techniques,” said Professor Martha Petry, dance instructor.

Students will perform 11 dances, with a variety of music from groups including Rhianna, Pink, Christina Aguilera, Sade, Aleesha Harvey, Ed Helms, Enya, Laurie Anderson, Ben Folks and Keisha.

Please join JCC’s dance students for this special afternoon.  Admission is free.
