Muskegon Community College dance concert will be April 12 and 13

Midwest dancer, speaker and instructor Deavondre Jones (pictured) will be the guest artist for the “Muskegon Dance Movement” concert at Muskegon Community College.

The concert in Overbrook Theater on the MCC campus will be 7:30 p.m. April 12 and 13. A talkback session with the company and audience will follow each performance.

“Muskegon Dance Movement” is the college’s resident dance company under the artistic direction of MCC dance coordinator Melissa Brunsting.

“I strive to make dance a part of the culture in our city, and center my choreography around that goal as much as possible,” said Brunsting, a native of western New York who received her bachelor’s degree in dance from Hope College.

“We will be presenting both new and revisited works this year. The dance works will range from socially conscious to musically driven.”
This year’s company members are MCC students Brea Beckley, Briona Bower, Taylor Depouw, Taylor Freed, Melanie Lamrock, Erika Larson, and Makenzie Nordstrom.

Tickets for “Muskegon Dance Movement” go on sale April 8. They are $10 for the general public, and $5 for children (12 and younger) and MCC students and faculty. To reserve, call the box office, (231) 777-0324.
