Student Dance Work to Be Staged in ‘Chapel Moves’

By | February 12, 2019

The Department of Theatre and Dance in the College of Charleston School of the Arts will present the dance concert, “Chapel Moves.” The annual concert features original dances by some of the department’s most talented students. These future professional choreographers and aspiring dance artists will showcase pieces selected for inclusion in the American College Dance Association’s southeastern regional conference.

Exploring themes of human connection, science and technology, and self-reflection in relation to the world around us, the choreographers have created an evening of dance showcasing the diversity and strength of the dance students. Many choreographers have challenged their casts with technical movement phrases, intricate musicality, and partner work, pushing the performance of the dance pieces both  physically and emotionally.

Performances will take place March 7 and 8 at 7:30 p.m., March 9 at 2:00 p.m. and March 10 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. The venue is the Chapel Theatre, 172 Calhoun St. Tickets are $15 for the general public; $10 for senior citizens and College of Charleston students and employees. Tickets can be purchased online, by emailing oleksiakm@cofc.edu, or by calling (843) 953-6306. More info at theatre.cofc.edu.
