Under the artistic direction of residential dance faculty member, Janaea Lyn McAlee, DancEstrella, the student performing company of Estrella Mountain Community College (EMCC), will present their latest production, The Door Within, on Friday, December 1st and Saturday, December 2nd, 2017 at 3p.m and 7p.m. The EMCC Performing Arts Center is located at 3000 North Dysart Road in Avondale. This event is open to the public and admission is free.

The Door Within features projects by dance majors enrolled in Choreography 2; collaborative dances by DancEstrella members; a new work by Janaea Lyn McAlee and composer/pianist David Anderson with guest musician Judyta Murzyn; and a solo by guest artist Jazmin Parker, an EMCC dance program graduate completing her BFA degree in Dance at ASU. Audience members are invited to a brief post-performance conversation with the company immediately after each performance.

“The starting point for our production this semester is the idea of entrances, exits and thresholds. The dancers were inspired to explore these ideas from an interior perspective and the title evolved from that focus,” says McAlee. The company uses collaborative dance making techniques to develop original work on a theme each semester.

EMCC dance program offers an AAFA degree in Dance and classes are open to all students, including participation in DancEstrella. For more information EMCC Dance Program, or Janaea Lyn McAlee at 623-935-8427, ude.niatnuomallertsenull@eelacm.aeanaj
