New Works dance concert showcases student talent

April 23, 2015

Expect to be wowed this weekend at the annual New Works Dance Concert featuring original choreographs by Stephens dance majors.

The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow and Saturday with a 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday.

New Works is produced entirely by students through Dance Collaborations. Dances were presented to a panel of adjudicators who selected the pieces that would go in the concert.

“A lot of hard work goes into this concert, which allows our dancers to showcase their talent—as well as their creativity—on stage,” said Elizabeth Hartwell, adviser of the company. “Community members will want to see this work.”

Audiences can expect a range of dance styles. Selections include:

  • “Hobo Hoe-down” and “Children,” choreographed by Kyla Ranney
  • “Midnight Soar,” “Five Women,” “Motherless Child” and “Prideland,” all choreographed by Ta’Shayla Montgomery
  • “Stand Together,” “One Last Dance,” “Remake of Charlie’s Angles,” by Tiara Saddler
  • “Abstract,” by Destiney Lockhart
  • “Subway’s Lament,” choreographed by Kate Wohler
  • “Oh Freedom,” by Lexi Collins
  • “The Social Disconnect,” by Savanna Blocker
  • “Fool of Me ‘Pig’” and “Tired of Waiting,” choreographed by AlexUs Collins.
