Brockport, NY – The tenth annual New Dancers Showcase will be held in The College at Brockport’s Rose L. Strasser Studio, Hartwell Hall, Kenyon Street, on Friday and Saturday, November 22 and 23, 2013, at 7:30 pm. Admission is free, but donations to the Friends of Brockport Dance scholarship fund will be gratefully accepted at the door.
Visiting professor and guest artist William (Bill) Evans has directed an improvisational demonstration of modern technique to introduce the dancers. The showings following will include 28 first-year dance majors and minors in the internationally-renowned Department of Dance. They will perform short choreographic works created for them by eight graduate students pursuing MFA or MA degrees, as well as a member of the adjunct faculty. This year’s concert displays a remarkable diversity of styles and moods, and includes modern, post-modern, contemporary ballet, Capoeira, jazz, hip-hop and tap dance.
Evans has served as faculty advisor for the New Dancers Showcase since the annual production was founded in 2004. This year’s concert coordinator is MFA candidate Bethany Fagan, who is also one of the choreographers. Each of the young artists participating in the Showcase was selected through a demanding audition process based on the strength of their previous training and their intellectual and physical promise for success in the field of dance. We are delighted to showcase these dancers as they are off to a bright start.
