On Thursday, June 9, 2016 at 6 pm, the Inner City Ensemble (ICE) will conduct an open-house in the Passaic County Community College (PCCC) Theater on the corner of Memorial Dr. and Ellison St. This intergenerational dance program, led by Artistic Director Nicholas Rodriguez will feature students from Public School #2, the Don Bosco Technical Academy (DBTA), as well as other teenage participants from various Paterson high schools.

The PCCC showing will also launch the ICE Alumni Choreography Lab, which is being facilitated by ICE alumnae, Liliana Amador-Marty.  Despina ‘Debbie’ Stamos and special guests will be previewing a dance collaboration.

The Inner City Ensemble’s mission is two-fold: to provide free and low-cost arts training to improve children’s lives within the City of Paterson;  and to present high-quality performances to promote a positive image of Paterson. ICE receives generous support from the City of Paterson / Department of Health & Human Services, and is funded, in part, by the Passaic County Cultural & Heritage Council at Passaic County Community College, through a grant from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.  For more information, contact Nicholas Rodriguez at 973- 684-6507 or nrodriguez@pccc.edu.
