Dance Department to Present Spring Concert
The Department of Dance will present a spring concert Thursday, April 16, through Sunday, April 19, in the Robinson Hall for the Performing Arts, Belk Theater. Performances will be at 7:30 PM, April 16-18 with a 2:00 PM matinee on April 19. Tickets are available online.
The concert will feature a showcase of different dance styles and will include student performers in works choreographed by dance faculty Gretchen Alterowitz, E.E. Balcos, Kim Jones and Rachel Tucker.
Alterowitz’s piece "What tread in solidarity, what lament" is a piece for 11 dancers set to music by Gustav Mahler and Max Richter. "Pulse," choreographed by Balcos, is inspired by and set to the "nuevo tango" music of Argentine composer Astor Piazolla. Domestic violence is the subject of Tucker’s "Suite Wonder," with music by Stevie Wonder. Kim Jones created "Mauri – Breath of Life" in consultation with Rodney Bell, a celebrated dancer of Maori descent who uses a wheelchair for mobility. The movement is inspired by elements of traditional Maori culture.
