Attend a free dance performance at The Woodland

MAPLEWOOD, NJ — Dancing at The Woodland featuring members of the NYC based Lydia Johnson Dance Company will offer a free performance to the public on Sunday, July 17, at 7 p.m. The Woodland is located at 60 Woodland Road in Maplewood.

Performing on the open floor of The Woodland’s great hall, dancers will present a “studio showing” of work by acclaimed choreographer, company founder and Maplewood resident Lydia Johnson.

“We are thrilled to have this opportunity to give back to the community,” Johnson, who offers year-round classes and a summer dance came at Maplewood’s Burgdorff Center for the Performing Arts, said in a release. A question-and-answer session with the dancers and Johnson will follow the performance.

Making use of the unrestricted open space available at The Woodland, dancers will perform in a rare intimate setting surrounded by the audience. Seats and standing room will be available for 250 guests only on a first-come, first-served basis. Doors open at 6 p.m. This performance is not appropriate for small children and no one under the age of 5 will be admitted.
