MM2 Choreographer, Heather Fleischman will present Cookie Cutter, danced by Katelyn Capato, Brianne Scott and Matthew Varvar.

Choreographer, Jenna Faye Eugenides offers up The Continuing Effects, a piece which examines abandonment and how it can happen in an instant and have lasting, lifetime effects on an individual. This will be danced by Jessica Bryan, Katelyn Capato, Angela Frezzo and Kaylee Goodwin.
Set to debut in late Spring of 2012, Conversations is literally a dialog through movement. With this new work, the company of ten dancers and choreographers explores our most fundamental means of communicating and interacting.
