A brief performance by young dancers from RoCA’s program for the Martin Luther King Multi-Purpose Center with Dancer/Educator Shawn Rawls.  Performance held at Rockland Center for the Arts

Saturday, June 22, 3:00pm

Free to the Public


On June 22nd a group of aspiring young dancers will have the opportunity to perform, @ 3:00pm (free of charge), followed by the professional troupe of Emotions Physical Theatre @ 5:00pm or 7:00pm (tickets: $30), at Rockland Center for the Arts (RoCA). 

RoCA has brought Shawn Rawls to work with the Martin Luther King Multi-Purpose Center.  Together they have brought free dance classes to the youth of Spring Valley.  Their eight week long class, learning technique and choreography, will culminate in a performance of contemporary dance on June 22nd at 3:00pm.  For all of the students this is their introduction to contemporary dance, though some have taken hip-hop classes. Rawls hopes to expand the program, with RoCA, to three class offerings in the near future giving young dancers the opportunity to learn contemporary and modern dance.  The student performance is free to the public.

The Youth Dancers are followed by a performance by Rawls professional troupe, Emotions Physical Theatre at 5:00pm and again at 7:00,  tickets are $30 for Emotions Physical Theatre.  For more information call 845-358-0877.
