Guest from New York to choreograph spring dance

posted in: News | 0

Every year, theatre professor Jennifer Camp hopes to try something new to keep things fresh in the dance community and this year is no exception. The spring concert, “Dance Works,” will be taking place this April 26 to 28.

Camp brought in a specialist for the concert, James Healey. He has unique experience from working as both a dancer and choreographer with the Shen Wei Dance Works in New York City and will be choreographing a contemporary dance piece this spring.

There are many different kinds of dance and Camp has included many in her concerts over the last nine years, but this year she said, “We’re doing classical [dance] ranging to contemporary.”

With Healey to produce the contemporary piece, Camp established TITLE Kate Powers as the lead choreographer for the spring’s classical dance piece.

Camp said, “I want people to know that they can expect to see more guest artists here as well.”

What she meant is that students and the rest of the community will be able to see guest artists in the concert this spring. In order to participate in the concert, an individual must be one of three things: a senior student, a faculty member or a guest artist.

An important notice for students to be aware of is that starting in the fall of 2012, Pacific will offer a dance major. Students interested in majoring in dance will be able to do so. Those interested should contact Camp via email at
