Dance Theatre Of New Jersey 

Cringe

Dance Theatre Of New Jersey is a student based company made up of concert and competitive dancers looking to take dance further into their future.  Director Jaimie Bernstein and Choreographer Tiffany Spataro Started this company ten years ago to follow their passion of dance.  Reaching the community it has grown into what it is today.  The piece that will be seen was created in 2020.

"Cringe" To feel disgust or embarrassment and often to show this feeling by movement of your face or body.  The main character in this piece fell into the darkness of addiction and depression.  Rather then being embraced by family friends and church she was she was ignored and turned away from.  Embarrassed to associate with her in fear it would reflect badly on there public perception.  All making the main character spiral further away.  The line "do I make you Cringe?" Is this character challenging these "perfect" people who choose to ignore her for their own benefit.

Forza Dance Company

Pace

Michaella Barron started the new NYC project based company, Forza Dance Company (FDC) in 2020. FDC is a group of powerful female friends devoted to exploring the human condition through dance. Together we push our physical and emotional limits, while creating an honest, communicative, and hopeful environment in order to relay genuine stories and situations through the medium of movement. “Outside In” is a dance film about the struggle with maintaining stability throughout the distressing Covid-19 pandemic, election, and social issues/pressures that have engulfed this past year and continue. The protagonist lives day by day trying to let joy in, until reminders of reality get in the way and destroy her spirits. After exhausting herself, she looks internally to resolve her conflicts and finds peace amongst the chaos.
