AVPA Dance Concert Opens Tonight with ‘Feelings, Exposed’

The Academy of Visual and Performing Arts One Body Dance Company invites you to an evening of faculty and student choreography exploring the range of human emotion. In addition to these works, we are also proud to feature some extended learning opportunities our students experienced with professional dancers and musicians. Opening tonight, Thursday, Nov. 18, 2021 with additional shows Friday and Saturday. 

Since last Spring, Invertigo Dance Theatre has provided a series of workshops for our students where they experienced how professionals approach choreography, find inspiration and create, edit, and refine their final works. We are honored that Invertigo will be presenting their dance film How We Emerge (part of the Kitchen Table Project) at our concert and you will delight in seeing some student choreography based on that idea.

This Fall, we welcomed Monti Ellison, choreographer of our African Dance and Drumming piece, and drummers Megashia Jackson and Malik Sow. These incredible musicians kept the students inspired with their amazing skills and rhythms! Monti’s choreography along with the songs and drumming will lift you up as the show’s finale!
