CHS Special Dance Company Hosting Performances May 13-14

2016 SD Poster High Special Dance

The Special Dance Company of Columbia High School will be performing on Friday, May 13 and Saturday May 15, 2016 at 8:00 p.m. (Doors open at 7:30 p.m.)

The Special Dance Company of Columbia High School is comprised of sophomores, juniors, and seniors who are chosen through a selective audition process. Under the direction of Kandice N. Point-Du-Jour they study modern dance technique, improvisation, choreography, and dance history. Each year the Company is proud to give the Janet Hicks Scholarship to a senior pursuing dance or a related field in the arts.

Although the company’s annual performance is held in May, the company also performs throughout the year. This year, the company had the opportunity to perform at the Two River Theater, Essex County Metro West Dance Festival and throughout the South Orange-Maplewood Community.

The Special Dance Company attends various field trips and in the past has performed at the NJ Performing Arts Center, Teen Arts Festival, Dance Gala for State and Eastern District Association of Physical Education, Health, Recreation and Dance and the Pulse on Tour. Last year the company participated in the National High School Dance Festival held in Philadelphia.

Tickets are $ 10 in advance and $12 the day of the performance. Tickets can be purchased online
