This dance company is not waiting in the wings. Artistic Director and Resident Choreographer, Daniel Charon and dancers of Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company will share how they have adapted and continue to find ways to create and express through dance in 2020. You will see a performance created moments before the live event, during a virtual residency with dancers from the University and the Company. Autumn Sun (2020) and behind the scenes footage of this new dance, created in the era of Covid and recently premiered as part of Ririe-Woodbury’s fall season performance, will also be shown.
The evening will conclude with a live question and answer session where viewers can submit questions in real time. Panelists will include Artistic Director, Daniel Charon, Company Dancers Dominica Greene and Nicholas Jurica, and School of the Arts Program Manager, Shoshana Zeldner.
