Junior and senior dance majors in the Wright State University Dance Ensemble will premiere their new works during the Emerging Choreographers Concert 2024.
The concert takes place Friday, Feb. 9, and Saturday, Feb. 10, at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Feb. 11, at 6 p.m. in DanceSpace 170 in the Creative Arts Center.
While admission is free, a suggested donation of $5 is recommended at the door to support future student productions. Seating is on a first-come first-served basis and is expected to fill up quickly, so audience members are encouraged to arrive early.
Wright State dance majors undergo rigorous training in diverse dance styles, setting the stage for a journey of self-discovery as budding choreographers.
The Emerging Choreographers Concert is the culmination of their dedication, providing a platform for these talented individuals to transform into choreographers. From selecting music and designing costumes to experimenting with lighting, each choreographer’s unique vision will come to life on stage.
The concert will feature choreography by senior dance majors Daniella Fuson, Natalie Nagy, Macy Perry and Elisabeth Sabol, and juniors Ariana Alvarado, Zoe Bees, Jonathan Foster, Gracie Harper and Alexis Wilson.
Their excitement, artistry and individual styles promise an exceptionally versatile and engaging performance that will leave a lasting impression.
The development by students of a unique artistic voice and sense of individuality is encouraged by the Wright State dance faculty. Pieces performed in the Emerging Choreographers Concert are a culmination of the work of students in Choreography I and Choreography II. Dance students are pushed to develop and master the craft of choreography by learning the various tools and methods that set them up for success in the rehearsal space and eventually the stage.
