CHS Special Dance Company Master Class Slated for May 4

From the Columbia High School Special Dance Company:

The Special Dance Company, Columbia High School’s resident dance company for almost 50 years, is giving young dancers in the South Orange – Maplewood community the chance to learn and dance with members of the Company at the Special Dance Master Class on Saturday, May 4.

“There is so much young talent in our community,” said Kandice N. Point-Du-Jour, Artistic Director of the Special Dance Company, “and we want to give kids a chance to experience what members of our Company do every day in class.”

The Special Dance Company Master Class is designed for boys and girls from Kindergarten to 8th Grade and takes place at Columbia High School. Check-in begins at 9:30am in the lobby of the school and the Master Class begins promptly at 10am. At 12:15pm, parents and friends of the students are invited to CHS’s historic, renovated auditorium for a showing of the work done in the Master Class and a sneak preview of the Special Dance Company’s May performance.

Admission to the Master Class is $25 per student and includes a healthy snack. Note that space is limited and Master Class tickets are not sold at the door as pre- registration is required. Visit by May 1 to register.

“I truly hope that every young dancer in our community gets a chance to be a part of our Master Class,” said Point-Du-Jour. “They can learn so much from our amazing Company members and maybe someday they will be on the CHS stage as a member of the Special Dance Company.”
