Pine Crest School’s Dance Etc. to Perform at A Love Affair to Honor Joan Miller

Brenda Gooden, Dance Director at Pine Crest School and her talented dancers, Dance Etc.,  will participate in A Love Affair: An Evening of Dance to Honor Joan Miller with Reception to follow on Saturday, February 27, 2016 at 7pm.

After graduating from the University of Oklahoma with a BFA in Ballet Pedagogy, Brenda danced professionally with Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre.  She desired a warmer climate which led to her moving to Fort Lauderdale, where she taught at the Atlantic Foundation’s Academy for the Performing Arts.  It was during this time that Brenda met and worked with Miss Joan during a collaboration between the Academy and Joan’s Palm Beach Ballet.  Brenda taught for Miss Joan for several years, as she established the dance department at Pine Crest School in Fort Lauderdale and helped to establish the performing group, “Dance Etc”. She is  completing her 35th year as Dance Director at Pine Crest and almost 40 years of friendship with our beloved Miss Joan.

Her Morning Elegance, music by Oren Lavie, will be performed by Pine Crest School’s Dance Etc.  This lovely interpretive, contemporary piece was choreographed by faculty member and Pine Crest graduate, Ashley Hammond (class of 2012).

A Love Affair will be held at Countess de Hoernle Theatre at Spanish River Community High School: 5100 Jog Road Boca Raton, FL 33496
