Spring Dance Concert
The Department of Theatre and Dance will present the spring 2023 dance concert June 4-6 in the Della Davidson Performance Studio, Nelson Hall. Performances begin at 7 p.m.
The program features new works created by student choreographers under the direction of Doria E. Carlson, visiting professor, theatre and dance.
Carlson’s research and scholarship is deeply informed by her decades of praxis as a dancer. She has trained with ODC/Dance, Mark Morris Dance Group, the Alvin Ailey School, the Joffrey Ballet School, L’école Superieuse de Danse Rosella Hightower, and at Stanford University (Diane Frank, Robert Moses, and Aleta Hayes). Her writing and scholarship can be found in TDR: The Drama Review, Women & Performance, and Dance Research Journal, as well as in African American Arts: Activism, Aesthetics, and Futurity (Rutgers UP 2019).
All performances are free but reservations must be made in advance. Registration will be made available at the beginning of spring quarter.
