ALLENTOWN, PA - Shantell Cruz of Rahway is one of 60 Muhlenberg College students who will perform in this year's production of "Master Choreographers."

A spectacular evening of ballet, contemporary dance, tap, and jazz, "Master Choreographers" showcases exciting new dance works choreographed by nationally and internationally acclaimed guest artists and faculty.

This season's concert, which runs February 8 through 10, will feature "It Happens Only Once... Yesterday and Tomorrow," choreographed by guest artist Tiffany Mills, the founder of Tiffany Mills Company, which has received attention from The New York Times and collaborated with a number of prestigious institutions.

"The dancers rock and squirm and lock together to form designs like human puzzles," wrote Robert Johnson of The Star Ledger. "Stealthy and filled with surprises, Mills' work seems to tap the unconscious."
