Concert: Cookies and Milk

Montgomery Performance Space

Allegheny College’s Dance and Movement Studies Program presents its annual holiday concert, “Cookies and Milk,” for families and children on Sunday, December 8, at 2 p.m. in the Montgomery Performance Space.  Refreshments will be served at 3 p.m. in the Campus Center lobby.  The concert has been a tradition for more than 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 Professor Emeritus Janyce Hyatt. A highlight in the concert will be a traditional Asian Indian dance solo performed by Dance and 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 p.m. so call the Dance and Movement Studies office (814) 332-2813 to make a reservation or email
