W&L Dance Company Performs in New York City
The W&L Repertory Dance Company performed a partial preview of their annual winter concert on March 14 in the Center for Performance Research, a contemporary performance laboratory in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
The preview included both W&L dance students and dance alumni, performing eight works created by nationally renowned choreographers as well as students and alumni of Washington and Lee. The evening ended with an excerpt from a new work, “The 25th of March,” by Jenefer Davies, associate professor of dance and director of W&L’s dance program.
“Bringing together graduates from the dance program with current students creates a beautiful synergy,” said Davies. “It creates a palpable force of teaching and learning for people who previously didn’t know one another but have a shared experience in W&L dance. It also gives students the opportunity to perform in a different venue in front of professionals in the field of dance. We’ve been fortunate to have been invited to perform in New York for the past three years, and it’s my goal to make this an annual occurrence for W&L dance students.”
The Dance Company’s winter concert will be held at W&L’s Lenfest Center for the Arts on March 30 – 31 and April 1.
