Rebecca Rice Dance Co. Kicks Off Performing Arts Series

The Cushing Academy Performing Arts Series kicked off on Saturday, Sept. 27, featuring the Rebecca Rice Dance Company. Over 200 guests from the outside community joined students and faculty in Cowell Chapel for this inaugural event.

“As Cushing is celebrating its 150th anniversary and our town of Ashburnham is celebrating its 250th anniversary, we feel it is particularly appropriate that we launch this new tradition -- The Performing Arts Series – by celebrating the creative work of our colleague and friend on the Cushing Academy faculty, Rebecca Rice, whose family has had a significant impact on the artistic life of this school, our local community, and the state of Massachusetts for generations,” said Cushing’s Director of Music, Desh Hindle.

Said Ms. Rice, “I was honored to have been asked to present my choreography in Cushing’s new Performing Arts Series, to contribute to the culture of the school and area, and to be able to share it with family, close friends and colleagues in this very special community.” The Series features two additional events with professional artists, as well as several performances by Cushing’s talented students, all of which are free and open to the public.
