February 23 Event to Feature Student Dancers from Eight MCPS Schools
The 4th annual MCPS Dance Showcase will begin at 7 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 23, in the auditorium at Northwood High School.
Students from the following schools are scheduled to perform: A. Mario Loiederman and White Oak middle schools, and Albert Einstein, John F. Kennedy, Col. Zadok Magruder, Northwood, Rockville and Wheaton high schools. This year for the first time, there will also be a performance from the All-County Dance Ensemble. These students thrive in dance class and exemplify their school’s instructional program. Student dancers in the ensemble are nominated by their dance teachers, and rehearsed as a group for three months.
The purpose of the event is to build the capacity of dance instruction in MCPS, broaden students’ experiences and expose students to other dance programs and educators throughout the county.
Tickets to this event are $10, and will be available at the door. Proceeds benefit MCPS dance programs.
Northwood is located at 919 University Blvd. West in Silver Spring.
The snow date for this event is Monday, Feb. 26.
