Every April, the Department of Theater and Dance puts on a popular spring dance show. This year, with music ranging from Puccini to Piazzolla, repertory courses played with the shape and formalities of social relationships, while composition students exposed choreographic devices, scores, and sources through short studies and improvisations. This season’s concert featured a duet choreographed by returning alumna, Natalie Johnson ’13, performed by guest artists Anna Hulse and Justine Lee, and danced to an original commissioned score by Norberto Oldrini.
Tyler Micoleau ’91, a two-time Village Voice OBIE Award winner, designed the lighting. He has designed lighting for opera, dance and theater across the country, as well as in New York at venues such as Lincoln Center Theater and the Public Theater.
The Spring Dance Concert is produced with support from the Alice Cooper Morse Fund for the Performing Arts and the June Vail Fund for Dance. Pickard Theater is located in Memorial Hall, on the corner of Bath Road and Maine Street. Open to the public, free of charge.
