DancEstrella presents Moving Portraits

Friday-Saturday 3 pm & 7 pm.

DancEstrella, the student performing company at Estrella Mountain Community College (EMCC), will perform their latest production, Moving Portraits, on Friday, April 27th and Saturday, April 28th at 3 pm and 7 pm. The EMCC Performing Arts Center is located at 3000 North Dysart Road in Avondale, AZ. This event is open to the public and admission is free.

 “For Moving Portraits the students have chosen to focus on identity and art. The organizing principle is the idea that what we reveal is only part of the truth of who we are, and in life, as in art, what people see – our portrait – is ever changing.” says artistic director and residential dance faculty, Janaea Lyn McAlee.

DancEstrella is an inclusive company (no audition required) with a focus on collaborative student choreography. Moving Portraits features Practicum projects (final dances choreographed by graduating majors), collaborative dances by DancEstrella members, and a new work by Janaea Lyn McAlee and composer/pianist David Anderson performed live with guest bassist, Paul Williams. Audience members are invited to stay for a brief post-performance conversation with the company immediately after each performance.
