Cabaret Papillon presents DancEstrella in This, That and the Other (Avondale)

April 27, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm MST


Cabaret Papillon presents DancEstrella in This, That and the Other (Avondale)

Estrella Mountain Community College’s student company, DancEstrella, will present four performances of This, That and the Other. This program features eleven Practicum dances including by Assistant Director, Dalyla Bates; collaborative choreography by students in Performance classes; and group dances by Artistic Director, Janaea Lyn McAlee and Ballet Arizona Guest Artist, Colleen Buckley.

Performances will take place on Friday, April 26 and Saturday, April 27, 2019 at 3 & 7 pm each day at the EMCC Performing Arts Center (PAC). Free and audience members will also have the opportunity to participate in a brief discussion with dancers at the end of the show.

The theme for the show is individuality and Professor McAlee explains that “Because of the range of dance styles and interpretations of the theme which interested the Practicum students, the shape of the production lent itself to a revue or cabaret style format. We decided to create an environment that represented a supper club and called that Cabaret Papillon. The production’s title of This, That and the Other captures the creative diversity of the student’s choreography.”   DancEstrella (above) – Photo by Nina Couch

The Performance and Practicum dances (final projects by dance majors) incorporate ballet, modern, contemporary, jazz, old school hip-hop and West African dance. These styles are combined in unexpected ways to explore individuality through the lens of self-discovery, relationships and community.
