The Riches of Newport's Arts

As part of Island Moving Company’s upcoming Open for Dancing Interlude weekend Sept. 25-26, students from Pell School will present their own dance program to fellow students and families on Friday, Sept. 25, at 1:30 and 2 p.m, and at 5 p.m. for the public. IMC dancer Christine Sandorfi is the choreographer. “We want our children to experience the riches of Newport’s arts community,” said Pell Family Services Coordinator Mark McKenna, “and the Island Moving Company is definitely one of those.” On Saturday, Sept. 26, the venue moves downtown, where Artistic Director Miki Ohlsen has created a piece, for IMC dancers, students, and members of the community “that will move through Queen Anne Square, accompanied by the Trinity Church carillon and then into the hubbub of Bowen’s Wharf.” Waterfront performances are at 3 and 4:30 p.m. All are free.
