Five dance minors participating in “Open for Dancing”
Five of Salve Regina’s dance minors – Elizabeth Franson ’15, Allyson Hamel ’15, Alli Montecillo ’14, Rebecca Moscariello ’15 and Kayla Tolman ’15 – will perform alongside Island Moving Company dancers during this weekend’s “Open for Dancing,” a festival celebrating community, art and landscape.
“Open for Dancing” brings together musicians, choreographers, professional dancers and dancers from the community to create dances for unique sites. The Salve Regina students will dance at the McKillop Library’s meditation labyrinth in a performance choreographed by Deborah Lohse, a teaching artist at the Center for Arts Education and the New York City Ballet.
Performances at the labyrinth are scheduled for 2, 3 and 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 21 and Sunday, Sept. 22. The complete schedule is available at www.islandmovingco.org.
Since its founding in 2002, “Open for Dancing” has showcased unique Newport landscapes with original dance works created by choreographers such as Monica Bill Barnes, Marta Renzi, Zach Morris, Daniel McCusker and Noemie Lafrance. For 2013, the festival moves out of town for the first time in the collaboration with Providence’s Steel Yard.
