Anne Arundel Community College’s Dance Company is poised to entertain audiences with the dynamic fall performance titled “Falling Up!” at 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday, Nov. 29 and 30.
Artistic Director Lynda P. Fitzgerald has choreographed three full company pieces for this performance. Updated from 2005, “In Hot Pursuit” is set to the wonderful, classical music of Rossini. It’s a humorous take on the “Barber of Seville.”
The second full-company piece, “Do Wak-a-Doo!” is a longtime favorite of Fitzgerald. This full-scale, fast and furious Charleston is set to the music of Sandy Wilson from the musical “The Boy Friend.”
The third piece, premiering on Nov. 29, is “Confined.” Set to the soothing music of Stephane Wrembel, the movement was inspired by observations in a crowd and clothing choices.
Exciting and eclectic student works are contributed by returning dancers Rachael Scaringe, Anwar Thomas, Andre Hinds and Patrick Harrington, all of Millersville; Samuel Boquist of Baltimore; Erika Goodfellow of Glen Burnie; Arrington Lassiter of Washington, D.C.; Elisabeth Lee of Linthicum; Emily Hurd of Arnold; and Kelsey Garrett of Severn and by newcomer Camilla Smigo of Queenstown.
Performances are at the Robert E. Kauffman Theater in the Pascal Center for Performing Arts on the Arnold campus, 101 College Parkway.
