Students direct and dance one last time with “Against All Odds”
SLIPPERY ROCK — Slippery Rock University’s Dance Department hosted its BFA Senior Dance concert, “Against All Odds,” April 17 via a livestream on the department’s YouTube channel. Each concert featured different performances.
Production of the concert began last semester when participating seniors were registered for the department’s BFA Capstone II: Performance, Choreography and Credit Hours Entrepreneurship course. As part the course, students were challenged to develop a research question, which would also shape the design of the dances featured during the concert.
Some of those research questions revolved around the use of architectural structures in dance and gravity defying movement, improvisation’s role in the choreographic process, and how physical art, in this case dance, can influence and create visuals and in return how visuals influence dance.
With COVID-19 forcing students to perform virtually, choreographers had to figure out how to transform their dances and articulate their themes through the lens of a camera.
Students, choreographers and dancers include:
n Anna DeRubeis, dancer, a junior dual dance and early childhood education major from Altoona.
n Faythe Lewis, dancer, a senior dual dance and recreational therapy major from Tipton.
n Sydney Lewis, dancer, a freshman dual dance and exercise science major from Altoona.
n Tori Steel, dancer, a freshman dance major from Everett.
To bring their performances to life, 13 student choreographers staged auditions for other student dancers to take part in the shows.
