Local dancers perform at NECC

Ramon Torres and Amanda Westcott, both of Derry, will perform in Northern Essex Community College’s “Stillpoint Dance XL.”

The performance will celebrate 40 years of dance at NECC and will feature student and faculty choreographed pieces.

Performances are Friday, April 26, and Saturday, April 27, at 8 p.m. in the Sport and Fitness Center on the Haverhill campus, 100 Elliott St., Haverhill, Mass.

Dance coordinator Michelle Deane choreographed “The Heat of Balance,” a high energy jazz piece featuring a fusion of Latin rhythms. The NECC Jazz Dance class will perform this original piece.

“The Pure Among Us,” choreographed by Wescott, an NECC student, explores the relationship of women in oppressed cultures and the need to break away from the structure. This piece was submitted to the American College Dance Festival at UMass Amherst in March and was well received.

Tickets, which can be purchased at the door, cost $7 for adults, $5 for students and seniors, and $3 for children under 12.
