“The students’ choreography is really the highlight of the evening,” explains Julie Carson, Artistic Director of Dance for the AVPA. “Our students have arrived at a place where their technical and creative experiences have come together. Their work is unique and very exciting. We used to stay away from fall concerts to encourage our students to concentrate on their technical proficiency. We have come to a time when the students are ready to create and perform just a few months into the fall semester. ”
In addition to the students, this year’s concert will also feature the work of three of the dance department’s bright and shining faculty members, Sadie Yarrington, and AVPA alums Becca Cousineau and Christian Espinel. This small group of dance faculty have been quite an inspiration to our students, and they bring new technical and creative challenges. Their new ideas have been eagerly devoured by our students.
An evening jam-packed full of original dances that are thrilling, thought provoking, humorous, and poignant; don’t miss this event of energy and excitement, movement and stillness, expressions of western and world dance ideas.
