Community Dance Project (Happendance) Performs at (SCENE)

Once again, on Friday, August 5th, (SCENE) Metrospace is hosting two dance performances by Community Dance Project and Happendance!

The first performance is at 7:00. This performance will be followed by a repeat performance at 8:00.

This event is free and open to the public.

(SCENE) Metrospace is located at 110 Charles Street, Downtown East Lansing, under the multicolored parking ramp.

The program will present dances with smaller casts ranging from 1-5 dancers, including works by Clara Martinez, a dance major at Ohio State University (recently ranked the #1 dance program in the country), as well as works by Okemos High School seniors, Grace French and Lea-Janelle Mitchell, who will be attending the prestigious Hartt Conservatory for Dance on scholarship in the fall.

Since 1977, the company has performed in a variety of local theatrical venues -- school auditoriums, Impression 5 Museum, Wharton Center Pasant Theatre, Fairchild Auditorium, Riverwalk Theater, Hannah Community Center, and Dart Auditorium -- featuring their own works and those of notable guest artists.

In addition, Happendance has for many years been in the Michigan Humanities Council's adjudicated Touring Arts Directory, and performed in Michigan venues and nearby states. Highlights of recent years include an interdisciplinary concert series at Links Hall in Chicago, a series of Isadora Duncan dances at the Detroit Institute of Art, commissioned works for Lansing's Sesquicentennial celebrations, and a collaborative concert with Lansing Symphony Orchestra.
