We have all experienced loss, grief and difficulty over the past year. We are now reminded of the large and small ways we have, and can continue to, share joy. We are looking forward to leaning into these uplifting experiences and finding the joy in sharing our art during our spring concert.

*Strobe lighting and atmospheric effects may be used during some dances.

From the Director

What is joy? What brings you joy? What does joy feel like? These are just some of the questions our faculty, guest artist and student choreographers explored during their creative process this semester. Since 2020, our capacity for finding joy in the midst of an ongoing pandemic and other global crises has certainly been tested beyond measure. This concert is a testament to the human spirit and our capacity to remain steadfast in the pursuit of connection, self-expression and inspiration. While we all seek and express joy in our unique and individual ways, this concert offers a space to come together and experience the power of movement and dance...
