Our spring concert Becoming We features works by eight student choreographers exploring the theme of ‘me’ becoming ‘we.’ As the Department of Theatre and Dance celebrates the 10-year anniversary of the establishment of its dance major, Becoming We reflects the growth of diversity of genres represented on stage and the artistic strength of the students. Tap dancing in rain boots, Latin social dance, and a work that includes both ballet and modern are only three of the eight pieces in the concert.
Often, we find ourselves in new relationships and new communities that challenge our sense of self. Kristin Alexander, associate professor of dance and artistic director of the concert, notes the various ways that the choreographers chose to investigate the theme, ‘becoming we.’ “The choreographic process is quite vulnerable, and I have been in awe of how open the students have been from the beginning. The audience is going to witness an eclectic concert that has moments of celebration, sorrow, curiosity, and empowerment through movement,” shares Alexander. Although they have all performed in previous concerts, many of the choreographers are presenting a work for the department for the first time.
