Kathleen Mellen’s best bets
For 30 years, the Dance Company of Middlebury has been educating student dancers, chosen by audition at Middlebury College in Vermont. The group’s work has remained relevant and dynamic, largely because the company reinvents itself every year, under the direction of a different dance faculty member or guest artist.
Sunday at 3 p.m., it will premiere “Simply Light,” dance works that feature original music and video, a contemporary solo and a hip-hop suite.
Scott Dance Studio in the Scott Gymnasium at Smith College in Northampton. Free.
ANOTHER GOOD BET
These guys crack me up! Next Friday, the Ha-Ha Sisterhood improv troupe and Northampton High School’s improv groups, Funktionlust and The Unusuals, will get funny in the NHS Black Box Theater. The Ha-Has will perform “Book Club: Where Literature Meets Laughter.” The students say they are eager to join in. $5 at the door.
