Allegheny College’s Dance and Movement Studies Program presents its annual holiday concert, Cookies and Milk, for families and children on Sunday, December 8, 2019 at 2:00 pm in the Montgomery Performance Space. Refreshments will be served at 3:00 pm in the Campus Center Lobby. The concert has been a tradition for over 20 years.

Many people from the Meadville community as well as Allegheny College students help to make the show a joyful event. Participants in the Special Olympics will dance to a holiday tune, and Allegheny dancers will include students from several Dance & Movement Studies courses plus the student group JaDE. Two local dance studios will have dancers in the concert, and Meadville community families will present a song and dance piece coordinated by Prof. Emeritus Janyce Hyatt. A highlight in the concert will be a traditional Asian Indian dance solo performed by Dance & Movement Studies scholarship student Riya Agrawal.

In keeping with the seasonal spirit of giving, there will be a collection box for Toys for Tots at the concert. Audience members are welcome to contribute new, unwrapped toys to be gifted to a child who might otherwise not receive holiday presents.

The concert is free and open to the public. Please note that there will be only one performance at 2:00 pm so call the Dance and Movement Studies office (814) 332-2813 to make a reservation or email danceall@allegheny.edu.
