New Works to feature student-choreographed dances

April 22, 2014

Stephens College’s Dance Collaborations will present its annual New Works Dance Concert this weekend featuring original pieces choreographed by seven dance students.
The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, April 25-26, with a 2 p.m. Sunday matinee on April 27. Ticket information can be found here.
New Works is produced entirely by students through Dance Collaborations. Two weeks ago, dances were presented to a panel of five adjudicators who selected the pieces that would go in the concert.

Audiences can expect a range from ballet to hip hop to musical theatre, said Stephens senior Kramer Pruitt, president of the company.

Selections include “Variations from the World of Walt Disney,” choreographed by LeeAnn Davis; “The Enlightened and The Messiah: A Story about Jesus in India Befriending Buddha,” choreographed by Hydee Champion; and a piece titled “3 Heads are Better than One,” by Carrie Collins-Whitfield, which personifies in dance a personality disorder.
“Community members won’t want to miss this,” said Elizabeth Hartwell, adviser of Dance Collaborations. “A lot of hard work goes into the New Works concert, and it really allows our dancers to showcase their talents.”
