Wanderlust can be described as a strong desire to travel. Artistic Director Gretchen McLaine asked the choreographers to consider why some people experience an urge to wander or travel, while others are content to remain where they are. McLaine notes that “this dance concert explores various aspects of wanderlust as seen through the eyes of our talented student choreographers. This concert is largely a result of the choreographers experiencing their own kinesthetic sense of wanderlust, driving the creative process.”
McLaine is impressed with the various ways that the choreographers chose to tackle the concept of wanderlust. She recognizes that the themes they tapped into are reflective of what the young women are seeing and experiencing amidst a pandemic. Four of the choreographers are sophomores and two are juniors. All have strong backgrounds in dance but varying levels of choreographic experience for the concert stage. Junior Isabelle Byers is choreographing for the third consecutive year. Her work from last year’s spring concert was selected by the faculty to be presented at the recent American College Dance Association southeastern conference in Tallahassee.
