By Jennifer Duda
The College of DuPage Dance Department will present its third annual Choreography Showcase and Competition at 7 p.m. on Saturday, July 29, in the Playhouse Theatre at the McAninch Arts Center, located on the Glen Ellyn campus, 425 Fawell Blvd.
Seven choreographers were chosen from a highly competitive group of submissions: Miriam-Rose LeDuc, Taylor Mitchell and Cole Vernon, Laura Moschel, Alanna Nielsen, Ela Olarte, Sarah Olson, and Fernando Rodriguez. Cash prizes will be awarded as decided by a panel of judges, which includes past winner Cecilia Ferguson-Bell; Melissa Thodos, founder of Thodos Dance Chicago; and master teacher Laura Wade.
“This year’s show has some incredible choreographers, and I’m excited because it gives them an opportunity to show their creations for a new audience as well as compete for cash prizes,” said Jon Sloven, College of DuPage Dance program faculty member. “It also brings new people to the COD campus and highlights the incredible McAninch Arts Center and all it has to offer.”
The event also includes an opening number choreographed by Sloven, featuring students from COD’s Dance program. Additionally, a post-performance discussion with the choreographers will be held prior to the naming of this year’s winner.
Tickets for the July 29 Choreography Showcase are $15. For more information, please call the MAC Ticket office at (630) 942-4000 or visit: www.atthemac.org.
