Fall Dance

Our dynamic contemporary dance majors bring to life three new works and a reconstruction. Guest artist Robyn Mineko Williams premieres a piece created for the senior class alongside two works by UNCSA faculty members: Ming-Lung Yang’s mesmerizing "No Trace" and a collaborative piece by Kelly Maxner featuring Dance and Drama students. Rounding out the program, Associate Dean Brenda Daniels will set a new dance to J.S. Bach’s "Suite #1 in G major" for unaccompanied cello.

Winter Dance

This mixed ballet and contemporary concert features four blockbuster pieces, including Sir Frederick Ashton’s sublime ballet “Symphonic Variations;” a signature work by international sensation Aszure Barton; “in the shelter of the fold” by Doug Varone, a true dance force of nature; and Larry Keigwin’s eye-popping “Kingdom."

Spring Dance

Rich and resonant, this program features four distinctive works: Marius Petipa’s “Paquita,” a cornerstone of the classical ballet repertoire; José Limón’s classic modern piece “A Choreographic Offering,” set to music by J.S. Bach; Shen Wei’s haunting “Behind Resonance;” and Dean of Dance Susan Jaffe’s world premiere, “Concerto,” which was developed during the inaugural summer Choreographic Institute at UNCSA.
