Outdoor Dance Festival at Mass Motion Dance, Sturbridge, MA
You'll find high energy in the air on Sunday, September 13, 2009, when Mass Motion Dance, of Sturbridge, Massachusetts, holds its first ever Dance Festival.
The festival will run from 12 to 6 PM on the grounds of the Mass Motion Dance Academy at the corner of Route 20/Main Street and Route 148/Brookfield Road. The studio will offer a sampling of dance classes and performances for all ages, along with a backyard BBQ, face painting, live music, and an indoor dance party for kids.
The highlight of the festival will be performances on a full-sized professional stage donated by the Boston Dance Alliance. Performances will include:
- BoSoma Dance Company from Boston. BoSoma will present works by co-artistic directors Katherine Hooper and Irada Djelassi. Among the dances to be shown, Hooper will offer her piece, Tapestry, a dance which weaves fluid and sharp movements. Djelassi will present Boxed and Reverie's Muse,an abstract piece reminiscent of daydreaming.
- The Lee Lund Dance Company from Milford, Connecticut. This group is comprised of professional dancers from NYC and Connecticut. The Lee Lund Dance Company performance will include an exhilrating performance set to Peter Gabriel's "Kiss of Life."
- The Dance Project. This student company showcases Mass Motion Dance teens from both Sturbridge and Boston. The Dance Project will debut works by owner/director Terri Gordon, Irada Djelassi and Katherine Hooper.
Mass Motion faculty will offer demo classes for children and adults all day long in Mass Motion's large main dance studio. A special dance party for kids is planned in the rear studio. Spend the day celebrating the art of dance!
