Frostburg State University’s Department of Theatre and Dance presents its annual fall Dance Concert on Oct. 28, 29 and 30 at 7:30 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center’s Drama Theatre.
The concert will feature eight uniquely choreographed performances, with styles ranging from ballet to hip hop to jazz. Two seniors, Kira Stanley and Ellen Bell, will dance their final concerts. Stanley choreographed and will dance a contemporary solo exposing a woman who is tired of playing all the games of love. Bell created a contemporary modern dance inspired choreography depicting the hardships, frustrations and anger that a relationship goes through. The piece explores anger between two people, anger toward each other and self-reflection during the troubling moments.
Dance Company Director Jamie McGreevy choreographed another original piece depicting the battles for earth among the Goddesses of Wind, Fire and Water. This modern contemporary piece explores the paradigm of micro-movement, inner-body tensions and finding the anti-habitual body.
Elizabeth Collins choreographed a jazz piece for the concert and Keont’a McMiller choreographed a ballet. Rita Peacock’s piece includes hip hop, jazz and lyrical movement; the piece by Samantha Flowers and Brieana Jordan will be accompanied by the inspiring words of Maya Angelou. Senior Brieana Jordan and dancers Jay Moultrie and Sylvern Groomes will perform an upbeat hip hop piece to the music of Missy Elliott.
