The CCMONSTAGE Dance Series presents the Student Choreographers’ Showcase on March 5-8, 2020. Tickets available online.
CCM dance majors present dynamic and diverse works from classical ballet to traditional jazz dance with music ranging from Bizet to Queen at the Student Choreographers’ Showcase, running Thursday, March 5-Sunday, March 8, 2020, at Cohen Family Studio Theater.
This year’s featured student choreographers are JonMarie Johnson, Kate DeLon, Madeline Kallay, Emily Glaccum, David Lopena, and Erika Shi.
“This year six student choreographers present a diverse and engaging look at movement, culture and the human experience,” wrote CCM Dance Chair Shauna Steele in her director’s note. “I hope you enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed working with them.”
Johnson’s Enraptured follows a classical format with a fresh look at ballet, set to music by Gabriel Fauré and Georges Bizet. Killer Queen, with choreography by DeLon, presents a contemporary rock ballet set to the iconic music of Queen. Kallay’s Seeking Clarity and Glaccum’s Compass create a dance landscape where “contemporary dance forges a path and seeks to attain both tangible and intangible knowledge,” Steele describes.
With Her, Lopena fuses his own contemporary movement aesthetic with classical forms of jazz technique. Shi’s (Un)seeing and (Un)feeling is a contemporary work set to music by Zammuto, Albert Mathias and Chrome Sparks.
