Department of Performing Arts to present first-ever virtual Fall Dance Concert on Nov. 13-14

Join the Elon Department of Performing Arts for the first-ever virtual performance of the Fall Dance Concert on Nov. 13 and 14 at 7:30 p.m.

On Nov. 13 and 14, the Elon community is invited to the Department of Performing Arts’ reimagined 2020 Fall Dance Concert, which will take on a virtual form for the first time ever.

The concert will be streamed live each day at 7:30 p.m. at and feature performances by Elon Dance majors. Access to the live stream is free and open to the public.

Dancers: Erin Woods, Kate Axness, Sarah McNamee

The Fall Dance Concert features six original choreographic works for physically distanced solos, duets, trios, and quartets by Elon Dance faculty, students and guest choreographers Renay Aumiller (Artistic Director), Caroline Boothe, Jasmine Powell, Marissa Mahoney, Lauren Mitchell and Alex Warren. It celebrates diverse and varied voices in dance that reflect the challenges, limitations, repressions and isolation experienced uniquely by being alive in 2020.

This concert features dances that physicalize the humanistic experiences of current social landscapes through themes relating to community, social justice, self-analysis, and hope. While uniquely different in how they are presented, the choreographers all created works that are physically distanced yet rich in emotional proximity. The unique artistic choices made from one dance to another are eloquently executed by Elon dance majors, who are charged with the task of performing such varied and intense choreography.
