Overview

Spring Dance will highlight the strengths of both ballet and contemporary students with works that explore diverse ends of the respective disciplines.

The program will include “Shostakovich Suite” choreographed in 2013 for the Dance Theatre of Harlem’s professional training program by Endalyn T. Outlaw (née Taylor), dean of Dance and set to Dimitri Shostakovich’s Jazz Suite. Dean Outlaw will restage the work for the dance students with tutus designed and created by Jenna Anderson (B.F.A. Design and Production ‘22).

Contemporary students will perform iconic modern choreographer Merce Cunningham’s “Travelogue,” set to John Cage’s “Telephones and Birds,” in its first staging since the work’s premiere in 1977 by the Merce Cunningham Dance Company.

The performance will also include the premier of a new work by alumnus Ashley Lindsey (College Arts Diploma, Dance, ’07). Lindsey is currently a visiting professor and the director of the Summer Dance program. His new piece will be a large-scale ensemble work that explores the theme of trust and its various layers. The choreography will utilize Lindsey's signature virtuosic and physical movement vocabulary.

Program to include:

  • Ashley Lindsey Premiere of new work 
  • Tom Gold Premiere of new work 
  • Merce Cunningham “Travelogue” 
  • Endalyn T. Outlaw (née Taylor) “Shostakovich Suite”
