NECC dance students strike a pose.

Zombies will rock the stage at Northern Essex Community College’s student dance performance titled “Forward Leap” on Friday, Dec. 6, and Saturday, Dec. 7, at 7:30 p.m. p.m. in the Sport and Fitness Center on the Haverhill campus, 100 Elliott St. This event is open to the public. Tickets can be purchased at the door.

The zombie-inspired hip hop dance was choreographed by the NECC dance program coordinator Michelle Deane. “An Underground Affair,” features zombies dressed in scrubs as they rock out to the new “change” in their lives. This is a fun, high-energy, hip hop piece, performed by the Northern Essex hip hop class. The inspiration for this dance, says Deane, came from the “…overall popularity of Zombies with shows such as ‘The Walking Dead’ and ‘Being Human’.”

Another piece choreographed by Deane has the students channeling their inner “Sandy” and performing to “You’re the One That I Want,” from the musical “Grease”.

The night will showcase both student and faculty works.

Tickets are $7 for adults, $5 for students and seniors and $3 for children under 12. Tickets can be purchased at the door the evening of the show.

For additional information contact Michelle Deane at or 978 556-3597.

Northern Essex offers an associate degree in general studies: dance option and a certificate in dance education.
