Students to Perform in Danceworks Concert April 11 and 12

Monday, April 8th, 2013

The Department of Theatre & Dance at West Virginia Wesleyan College will present two concerts this week at the Culpepper Auditorium in the Virginia Thomas Law Center for the Performing Arts on Thursday, April 11 and Friday, April 12 at 8:00 pm.

This year, Gretchen Moore and Nina Scattaregia, lecturers in dance, have focused on creating repertory works in the dance minor program.   Moore’s contemporary piece “Validity” has been restaged and will also represent the Department of Theatre & Dance at the WV State Dance Festival at the end of April.   Moore has also created a new modern, hip-hop fusions piece. Scattaregia’s works include classical excerpts from Swan Lake and contemporary ballet.   Additional works include several solo and duet pieces choreographed by students in the dance minor and the Wesleyan Dance Team.

The concerts will showcase the diversity and artistry of the dance program here at Wesleyan.  For more information contact Nina Scattaregia at nscattaregia@hotmail.com or Gretchen Moore at gretchendance@hotmail.com.
