Senior Choreographers to Present Dance Works at SUNY Potsdam

04.28.11

The SUNY Potsdam Department of Theatre and Dance and its Dance Ensemble will present “Three Dimensional,” the annual Senior Choreographers’ Concert, in upcoming performances.

The Senior Choreographers’ Concert will be offered at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, May 6 and 7, with a matinee performance at 2 p.m. on Sunday, May 8, in the College Theatre located in Satterlee Hall.

Choreographed works will be presented by three seniors in the dance program, including Tani Currier from Watertown, N.Y., Talisa Davis from Massapequa, N.Y., and Mollie Priest from Cooperstown, N.Y. The student choreographers have studied dance composition and been mentored throughout the development of these works by dance faculty and peers. Each choreographer will present three works that culminate their studies, as their senior project. 

The concert will display a variety of genres, including contemporary, jazz and dance-theater. Each dance work is unique, and the choreographers hope the audience will find this concert to be innovative, thought-provoking and entertaining—no matter the viewer’s age, interests or dance experience. The performances feature more than 20 student dancers, who come from as far away as Texas and as near as Gouverneur, N.Y.

The public is invited and encouraged to attend. Please note that some of the material contains adult content for a brief period of time.

Admission to the concert is $3 for the general public and free to SUNY Potsdam students with ID. Tickets will be available at the door an hour before each performance. For further information, please call (315) 267-3394 or e-mail ddtix@potsdam.edu.
