DanceWorks will feature original work choreographed and performed by Cedar Crest dance alumnae and their students. Current Cedar Crest dance majors will perform choreography by Cate Mease (’00 Fine Arts), reconstructed and taught by Robin Gerchman.

“I am very excited to welcome back Cedar Crest dance alumnae” says Artistic Director Robin Gerchman.“The alumnae partaking in DanceWorks graduated between 1999 and 2013. We are gathering as a tribute to Carol Welton Kelly, the founder of the dance major at Cedar Crest, who passed away in March 2002. These performances will be a synergy of talents - choreographic and performance - and a chance to bring our alumnae together on one stage. This will be a true testament to the Carol’s legacy and honor her in such a special way.”
