MSSD’s 31st Winter Dance Concert, “Gotta Dance”
Directed by Yola Rozynek
Special Highlight of This Year's Concert
This year MSSD's Performing Arts Program celebrates the 20th anniversary of a special trip to Senegal, West Africa, that changed the lives of the nine MSSD students who participated.
The trip was organized by Marcia Freeman, then-dance teacher at MSSD, in collaboration with the KanKouran West African Dance Company. As part of the celebration at this year's concert, three alumni of that tour-Mervin Primeaux, Carol Penn, and Marcia Freeman (Senegal Redux)-will perform a specially created West African dance and share photos from their trip.
