Kellogg Community College’s  Student Life office invites students and community members alike to participate in a field trip to Chicago to see performances by the nationally acclaimed Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater on Saturday, March 16.

The event will begin at 2 p.m. at the Auditorium Theater of Roosevelt University in downtown Chicago. KCC’s bus will leave for the theatre at 9 a.m. from the Circle Drive at the front of the college’s North Avenue campus, 450 North Ave., Battle Creek, and will return to campus at approximately 10 p.m. that evening.

The cost for the trip, which includes transportation and a ticket to the show, is $40 for community members and KCC employees and $30 for KCC students. Lunch is not included and ticket purchases are non-refundable.

“Every year the Student Life office provides opportunities for our students to participate in activities off campus to help enhance their college experience,” said Rose Dulaney, secretary of Student Life at KCC. “In previous years our students traveled to Chicago to attend plays; this year marks the first time I can remember that we are offering our students a chance to experience performances by such a renowned dance group.”

In addition to viewing the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater performances, participants will have two and a half hours of free time to explore downtown Chicago.

People interested in going on the trip can register in the Student Life Office on KCC’s North Avenue campus until 5 p.m. Friday, March 15. For more information about the trip, contact the Student Life Office at 269-965-3931 ext. 2634 or email studentlife@kellogg.edu.
