Northern Essex Community College dance student Nina Cabral of Pelham, NH, is held by fellow dancers during a modern dance that will be performed during the NECC Stillpoint Dancers’ spring performance at Lawrence High School Friday, April 24 & Saturday, April 25

A dance piece choreographed by Northern Essex Community College alumna Amanda Westcott will be one of the center pieces of NECC’s annual spring performance – “Stillpoint XXIII” presented Friday, April 24th, and Saturday, April 25th, at 8 p.m. at Lawrence High School, 70-71 North Parish Road, Lawrence.

Westcott of Derry, NH, initially choreographed this piece for the NECC dancers who attended the American College Dance Association conference this past March at Rhode Island College. The piece, titled “Joe” is about the loss of a loved one and how the survivors cope and find closure.

Another piece, “Finish Fast” was choreographed by Dance Program Coordinator, Michelle Deane for the Modern Dance Techniques class.  This piece explores the idea of life being a race that never ends. It challenges the question, how do we finish?  Do we race through life or do we enjoy the journey?

Tickets are $8 for adults, $6 for student and seniors, and $4 for children under 12. Tickets will be sold at the door.

For additional information, contact Michelle Deane mdeane@necc.mass.edu or 978-556-3597.

NECC offers a certificate in dance education and an associate degree in general studies: dance.
