This year’s show features choreography from the students, their teacher, Cara Scacco, as well as three guest artists. RBR Alum and NFL Cheerleader, Gabriella Redaelli, choreographed a sharp and fun group jazz number for the Junior and Senior classes.

 

The dancers state, “The fast-paced tempo was challenging but it gave us insight into one exciting aspect of professional dancing.” 

 

Kiana Rosa-Fischer also choreographed a fluid modern/contemporary work on the dancers. Kiana holds a B.F.A. in Dance from Mason Gross School of the Arts. Guest musical theater choreographer Anthony Giorgio created a work for the freshman and sophomore majors. Anthony has had the good fortune to choreograph musical theater works all around the world as well as our tristate area.

 

Clara Bernardinello, a senior dance major from Bradley Beach, reflects on her experience as a four-year dance major stating, “The RBR Dance Department has given me the opportunity to make my best friends. It has sculpted me into a better person and prepared me for college. I will miss working together with my peers.”
