The Department of Theater and Dance presents its annual spring dance concert, a diverse program featuring choreographic works created by advanced senior dance majors and faculty choreographers.

This year’s Spring Dance Concert will include two works by guest choreographers set on our Student Company. The first work, a new piece titled “This is the Way it Ended” by Alexandra Beller was created specifically for the Company. The second piece the Student Company is performing, “Songs for Chile,” is a modern dance masterwork from former José Limón dancer, Lucas Hoving. Two Professor Emeriti from UC Santa Barbara, Alice Condodina and Tonia Shimin have reconstructed the dance and share an intimate connection with the piece – having performed together in the original cast in 1981.

Also included in the program are five new dances choreographed by senior Bachelors of Fine Arts (BFA) students, Wilson Vu, Kate Lyons, Kasey Burgunder, Heather Mignon Cross, and Dakota Bailey.

[This production is not targeted to children.]
