Description Program: Welcome, Student Performance, Talk Back, Closing Remarks, Reception.
Dancing into the Future is an after-school program dedicated to teaching young dance enthusiasts about the art of choreogrpahy. Students participating in the program were chosen based on willingness to take on new challenges and their genuine love for dance. This year, Dancing into the Future participants worked in residence with INSPIRIT dance company. Led by Christal Brown -- with Master Classes taught by guest artists Chuck Davis, Shizu Homma, and Monstah Black -- the students were taught various movement techniques and then guided through a choreographic process. This performance is a culmination of the students' original choreography. Tonight, the students of Dancing into the Future share their choreographic pathways: where they have been as dancers, who they have become, and where they hope their paths will lead them.
