The Genesee Community College Forum Players Theatre Company, which is an integral part of the College’s Theatre program, is planning a weekend dance program to benefit the nonprofit organization. Tara Pocock, adjunct instructor and student Blake Carter will present several dance performances the weekend of Friday, May 13 through Sunday, May 15, 2016 in the Stuart Steiner Theatre on the GCC Batavia Campus.
Carter, a Batavia native, has choreographed a dance called, “Ring Around the Rosie,” which tells the horror story of a young boy and his mother who move into a house with a dark past; a house infested with demons who want one thing… the boy. Due to some adult language used in the production, anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. There will be two opportunities to catch the event, Friday, May 13, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, May 14, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are just $6 and all proceeds from the shows benefit GCC’s Forum Players Theatre Company.
Then on Sunday, “Spring into Love,” an hour-long production will be presented by the dance troupes of Anastasia’s Spotlight Dance in Churchville, New York. The performance will be choreographed by Stacy Bechtold, studio owner and director, and Pocock. The performers will be singing and dancing Christian melodies as well as songs brought to Disney by the studio. A total of 40 students ranging in age from 7-18 years old will take part in the performance that is scheduled Sunday, May 15, 2016 at 2 p.m. This event is free, but audiences are encouraged to make generous donations in support of GCC’s Forum Players Theatre Company.
