McMINNVILLE – Members of the Linfield College Dance Ensemble will present “Stage Rage,” two dance concerts to be held Friday and Saturday, May 2 and 3, at 8 p.m. in the Richard and Lucille Ice Auditorium, located in Melrose Hall at Linfield.

Both performances, which are part of the Linfield Mom’s Weekend, are free and open to the public.

Students will perform 10 dances featuring a wide-range of music, from traditional African rhythms to contemporary pop songs. All of the dances are choreographed by ensemble members or Emily Crocker, Dance Ensemble director.

Crocker earned a bachelor’s degree in dance at the University of Oregon and has taught at Willamette University, McKay High School and West Salem High School. She has also served as a guest teacher at the University of Oregon where she instructed the UO Colorguard. She is the rehearsal director of Dance Africa, a UO repertory company with which she has danced for seven years, and the movement director at Scott Reese Superior Leadership Camp.

Members of the spring dance ensemble class participate in the concert. In addition to performing, students help with professional responsibilities associated with the productions.
