If you haven’t purchased your tickets for Eclipse Performing Dance Company’s inaugural performance in just twelve days, you should. There are enough other weekends left this summer to go to the beach, catch an Ironbirds game or to grab all-you-can-eat steamed crabs. For Eclipse PDC’s Storm, there is only one weekend.
Director, Choreographer and Eclipse Founder Christi Janney has brought this group of dancers to the brink of what will be a groundbreaking performance for Cecil County. Unless you want to drive to New York and pay triple or quadruple the money to go see cutting edge dance, what Janney has put together for July 27-28-29 will be an eye-opener for local dance lovers.
Cecil Scene had chronicled the progress of Storm from its infancy, through the development of each element to the point where Storm is stage ready. To watch the cast come together as one cohesive dancing unit, you can find all of our previous articles. This will be our last in-studio update. Throughout, the folks at Sundance Studio in Rising Sun have provided the Eclipse PDC crew the space to rehearse. In two weeks, all the hard work will be on stage at Milburn Stone Theater at Cecil College – in the elements, literally.
For those of you who haven’t been following, the company of Eclipse PDC will weave you through the elements of Earth, Wind, Fire and Water. At the heart of the show is one single quote, “Life is not about waiting for the STORM to pass…it’s learning to dance in the rain.”
There is nothing like Storm or Eclipse PDC anywhere close to Cecil County. Janney’s goal has been to bring intelligent and creative dance to the area. After watching this show come together, it is clear Janney and her dancers deliver.
