The AACC Dance Company will celebrate its 25th year with a series of special performances beginning Saturday and Sunday, July 20-21.
Ushering in the year will be AACC Dance Company alumnus Lance Guillermo and his wife, Danielle Sten-Guillermo, who will present their original production, “Working America.” Shows are at 8 p.m. Saturday, July 20, and at 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Sunday, July 21, all in the Robert E. Kauffman Theater of the Pascal Center for Performing Arts on Anne Arundel Community College’s Arnold campus, 101 College Parkway.
Guillermo performed with the AACC Dance Company for three years, taking lessons and doing some of his first choreography. Since then, he was an assistant choreographer and dancer in a Disney film, “Lemonade Mouth.” “Working America” is a story based on Danielle’s life of working at a behind-the-desk, 9-to-5 job while thinking of all the other things she would rather do. Through the narrative, the audience is introduced to other characters who make up today’s work world. The show is being produced with funding from the Kickstarter initiative that is an independent way to fund creative projects by pitching projects on the internet and asking for backers to commit to it.
Tickets for “Working America,” can be purchased at the door for $20 or online at www.workingamerica.eventbrite.com for $20 plus 2.09 processing fee.
More special performances will be scheduled throughout the year. For more about the AACC Dance Company’s 25th year, contact Lynda P. Fitzgerald, director of the company, at [email protected] or 410-777-7021.
