IMD Repertory Dancers, 2018 Alumni Reunion Weekend, September 15, 2018


Happy Holidays From IMD Repertory Dancers

A holiday concert by the IMD Repertory dancers was performed at McGivney Bethune apartments on December 4, 2018. Over forty residents and family members were in the audience enjoying refreshments and the performance. Along with holiday-themed pieces, the company also performed an intergenerational collaborative piece entitled Growing Old But Not Alone. The Kresge funded piece was choreographed by Barbara Selinger, Artistic Director of Detroit Dance Collective. After the students interviewed the residents of McGivney Bethune they worked with Ms. Selinger on putting the seniors’ thoughts, lives, and passions into dance movement. Community was the underlying theme of the piece. The piece will also be featured in the end-of-year student concert. Kudos to Veronica Williams Jakubus and Marnita Dickerson, IMD Dance Faculty for their artistic vision and coordination. Special thanks as well to Eunice Jeffries and Angela LaCour, costume coordinators, and the Marygrove Institutional Advancement department, Dennis Howie, Glenda Price & Janet Kuras, for their generous donation of a holiday basket including a $50.00 gift card. Lizzie Bell was the winner of the raffle.
