The concert will feature pieces choreographed and performed by students in a range of University dance courses. Student directors for the 2018 Choreographer’s Showcase are Catherine Higgins ’18 and Kelly Pretz ’18.

Their pieces will be performed by University students. The lighting compositions will be created by students in the University’s Theatrical Lighting Design course.

“I really enjoyed the process of choreographing my piece this semester. It was challenging at times but I continued to find new sources of inspiration and I’m so proud of the end result!” Greenberg said.

“My dance would be zilch, zippo, nada without my dancers, and I always felt a bolt of electric excitement for every rehersal we had. I am really going to miss them” Leonard Orozco ’18 said.

The University’s Department of Theatre and Dance will also present the Spring Dance Concert on April 28 at 7:30 p.m. and April 29 at 2:00 p.m. The event will be held in the Weis Center. Admission is $12 for adults and $7 for students and senior citizens — students may pay with their University ID.
