Spring Dance Concert

On May 3 and 4, Cushing dancers wowed Chapel audiences with their spring concert, "EMPOWER." This concert focused on the development and empowerment of young female leaders; showcasing creative spirit, drive, and originality of thought through the power of movement.

The choreography included dance works of original creative movement in the styles of modern/contemporary, ballet, hip-hop, tap, and jazz. All the dance classes at Cushing were represented. A special solo for senior Catherine Zeng, Tribute, was be highlighted as well as group pieces for the Advanced Dance Class, Empower, and an original Ted Shawn (Denishawn) work created in 1938 called Forty-Niners, a piece inspired by the gold-miners in early 19th century America.
