KD Conservatory alumni have came together and created SweatBox Refugees, an annual dance concert at KD Conservatory. It all started five years ago during rehearsals, where alumni decided to continue their passion for dance and desire to grow as choreographers after finishing their Musical Theater program.
Their goal is to give back to their school and community, showcasing their talents and ideas. Their creativity freedom expands from choosing type of dance, dancers, music material, concert themes, even light directing! Alumni contribute as the choreographers and current students are invited to participate as dancers.
This is all possible thanks to their backbone Ms. Paula Morelan, ballet teacher at KD and SweatBox Director. She has dedicated many years supporting her students and with her incredible discipline and work ethic, she has managed to continue being their biggest inspiration to continue putting the show together.
Producing the show is a joint collaboration between Musical Theatre Director, Michael Serrecchia, and Musical Theatre faculty member, Paula Morelan.
