Flexing choreographic muscles, students present Modern Student Concert

25 October 2021 Published in News and Announcements

The School of Dance continues its 2021/22 season with Modern Student Concert, featuring original works choreographed, performed, and produced by the students themselves.

“The Student Concert has always provided University of Utah students in the School of Dance a place to present their artistry— a chance for students to flex their choreographic, performance, and production muscles all at once, and together as a group.” said Ellen Weiler of the Student Concert Committee. "This semester we have choreographers showing their work both live and through screendance. There are also choreographers working with both dancers and painters in a collaboration to bring different arts communities together."

This season’s fall Student Concert production will feature works from Mercedes Rice, Lily Hammons, Shelby Strickler, Jamie Chen, Angeline Bourgeault, Chloe Barry, Anna Kazwell, Alyssa King Charlotte Stehmeyer, Ellie Russel, and Madeline Nelson.

To ensure the health safety of both performers and audience, we are limiting the audience number with an easy RSVP to the show. We hope that this will continue to provide a supportive environment for artists to show their work.
