Fall Dance Concert

Cowell Chapel
The Cushing Dance Department will present SPECTRUM, a dance concert of student and faculty choreography, on November 8 and 9 at 8 pm in Cowell Chapel.
This year we have a large number of student choreographers showing their creative voices in original and diverse dance styles ranging from Bollywood to ballet and contemporary to hip hop. Seniors Selina Shen, Jillian Stone, and Arielle Auringer are spotlighted in Ms. Rice’s advanced contemporary piece "PINK", a work showcasing the innovative modern work of both students and Ms. Rice, Director. Other highlights include a Chinese-inspired solo by senior Angela Tao, original contemporary choreography by Selina Shen, and Bollywood by Manisah Islam. A creative hip-hop piece by Krystal Sun, Rachelle Wu and the Intermediate Dance Class will also be performed.
Ballet and historic Denishawn will be featured, including a new work, "Adagio", for Ms. Rice's intermediate students, as well as Ted Shawn's "Statue" (1920) dance and excerpts of "Wine, Women and Song" (1932).
We hope you will join us for an enlightening and diverse evening of dance!
