Spring Dance will highlight the strengths of both ballet and contemporary students with works that explore diverse ends of the respective disciplines. The program will include “Shostakovich Suite” choreographed in 2013 for the Dance Theatre of Harlem’s professional training program by Endalyn T. Outlaw (née Taylor), dean of Dance and set to Dimitri Shostakovich’s Jazz Suite. Dean Outlaw will restage the work for the dance students with tutus designed and created by Jenna Anderson (B.F.A. Design and Production ‘22).

Contemporary students will perform iconic modern choreographer Merce Cunningham’s “Travelogue,” set to John Cage’s “Telephones and Birds,” in its first restaging since the work’s premiere in 1977 by the Merce Cunningham Dance Company.

The performance will also include the richly nuanced work of Helen Simoneau, a UNCSA alumna and artistic director of Helen Simoneau Danse. A Guggenheim Fellow, Simoneau was named “a choreographer-on-the-rise” with a style that is both “athletic and smooth” by Dance Magazine. Her new piece will explore her interest in power dynamics and soft power - the introvert's strength - alongside her signature large-scale virtuosic and physical movement vocabulary.
