The tenth annual, New Dancers Showcase, will be held in The College at Brockport’s Rose L. Strasser Studio, in Hartwell Hall on Friday and Saturday, November 22 and 23, 2013, at 7:30 pm.
Admission is free, but donations to the Friends of Brockport Dance scholarship fund will be gratefully accepted at the door.
Visiting professor and guest artist William (Bill) Evans has directed an improvisational demonstration of modern technique to introduce the dancers. The showings following will include 28 first-year dance majors and minors in the internationally-renowned Department of Dance. They will perform short choreographic works created for them by eight graduate students pursuing MFA or MA degrees, as well as a member of the adjunct faculty. This year’s concert displays a remarkable diversity of styles and moods, and includes modern, post-modern, contemporary ballet, Capoeira, jazz, hip-hop and tap dance.
