Dance minors presenting new works in Student Choreography Showcase
Salve Regina’s dance minors will present new works during the annual Student Choreography Showcase, directed by assistant professor Lindsay Guarino and Cayley Christoforou ’15.
Performances will be held at 8 p.m. Thursday, April 21 and Friday, April 22 and 2 p.m. Saturday, April 23 in the Antone Academic Center’s Megley Theatre.
The concert will feature a wide range of contemporary choreography and many of the pieces are the final projects for DNC400: Choreography. Each piece is the product of a semester-long process of creative exploration, peer feedback and faculty mentorship.
Psychology major Bridget Durkin ’16 challenges the audience with her powerful piece “Speak Up,” which looks at the potentially tragic consequences of bullying. Music major Zoe Michalopoulos ’18 puts her vocal talents to use as she provides live accompaniment for her piece “In the End.” Sara Vickey ’17, a business administration major, uses tap dance as means for communicating how she imagines life would be without eyesight in her piece “Perception.”
With almost 40 students involved in the production, this event highlights the wealth of talent and the vibrancy of the dance program at Salve Regina. Additional choreographers include Haley Andrews ’18, Taylor Becchetti ’17, Emmaline Concordia ’17, Marissa Guerard ’18, Olivia Gormley ’17, Allison Lavoie ’17, Kate Racine ’17, Hayley Robichaud ’18, Sabrina Stensland ’16 and Lexie Stewart ’16.
Admission is $5 for general and $3 for Salve Regina students. Tickets will be available at the door and may also be reserved in advance by calling (401) 341-2250.
