Dance Experience” showcases student, faculty work

Publication Date

With winter feeling a lot like spring this term, is it any wonder the traditional Winter Dance Concert will become the Spring Dance Concert this year? Due to scheduling conflicts, the performance held each March has been moved to May.


But terpsichorean enthusiasts, take heart: The Dance Experience Show will be presented Friday, March 2 at 6 p.m. in the Dance Studio of the Visual Arts Building.

Created by dance faculty and students, it features an hour of intricate moves, music and rhythms by some 30 students in Dance Program Director Miryam Moutillet’s Dance Experience class.

Other highlights include works by Ballet III practicum students and the Union College Dance Team, and a solo and Broadway and jazz pieces choreographed by Instructor Marcus Rogers.

The event is free and open to the campus community, with a reception in the Burns Arts Atrium following the performance.

And mark your calendars now for the Spring Dance Concert, to be held May 23-26 at Yulman Theater. With a large cast, original choreography and live, electronic music, this year’s concert is a French fantasy titled “PARIS DANSE.” More details to come.
