Event Description

The School of Theatre and Dance presents

BFA Senior Dance Concert/Student Dance Festival

showcases new choreography by junior and senior dance performance and dance education majors and minors at Kent State University. In addition, dance performance major and B.F.A. candidate Lauren Kengla-Graber will perform a solo created for her by Assistant Professor Erin LaSala. These premiere performances will offer audience members the opportunity to view original works that showcase the versatility and creativity of the choreographers.

The concert will present a dynamic array of works about overcoming adversity, recognizing important relationships, finding stillness within chaos, and looking for control. Thirty-six dancers will perform in nine different pieces of modern and contemporary choreography.

The Unknown, choreographed by Lauren Kengla-Graber, B.F.A. candidate and student director, contrasts two couples as their relationships transpire and change as they grow. Color Me, choreographed by SDF Student Director Emily Perrott, encourages the dancers, as well as the audience, to identify the things or people in their lives who keep them going through all of life's continuous battles. In Game Changer, choreographer Stacey Ubelhart illustrates the meaning of silence in loud chaos.  In Under the Sun [a time to dance] Shayna Fischer strives to show the audience that dance can bring light to the darkest of places and that everyone has dance in their heart.
