The UT Martin Dance Ensemble will present its fall semester showcase, Ambivalenceat 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday, November 17 and 18, at the Harriet Fulton Theater in the Fine Arts Building on campus.

The dances are choreographed by the ensemble’s director and teacher, Sarah McCormick, but also by students Marlee Scott, Lanna Kate Graves and Maleia Bigham, who also perform in the showcase.

McCormick says she’s so proud of how her students have taken on the difficult task of putting on a show like Ambivalence.

“A lot of work has been put into this show! There have been a few bumps in the road, you might say, this semester, but with each challenge, the students have pulled together and figured things out. I’m so proud of the work they put into the show,” McCormick said.

Bigham, a first-year dance education student, says she is very excited about dancing with a large group of friends and debuting pieces close to her heart. When asked what kind of dances she would perform, she gave a real and raw answer.

“There is such a variety of dances in this show which have themes of friendship, love, death and unity. That’s why the show is called Ambivalence, because it deals with different mixed emotions,” says Bigham.

Members of the UT Martin dance program poured their hearts and souls into this showcase, says Bigham, which is one of the reasons she is so thrilled to perform.

Scott, a second-year dance education student, did a lot of behind-the-scenes work for the show, like making sure all the dances were in a certain order, checking costumes, creating and learning her own dances, and even more. . She says she is thrilled to be on the dance floor again.

“The feeling I have when I play is not like the others; it’s like flying and falling at the same time while showing your soul to a group of strangers without saying a word. It’s a powerful thing,” says Scott, who stars in four of the show’s eight plays.

When asked why students should attend the show, Scott said, “Students should want to broaden their horizons and try something new. A lot of people I spoke to didn’t know anything about our major or ensemble schedule and were interested to see what it looked like. This show is the perfect opportunity to see what we study day after day – a true art form that takes time, skill, patience and dedication.

“Seeing this show will give students a new perspective and respect for dancers and should inspire them to learn more about what the arts at UTM have to offer,” she says.

The Weis Center for the Performing Arts will host Micaela Taylor and her Los Angeles-based contemporary dance ensemble, The TL Collective, Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at the Weis Center.

Micaela Taylor is a dancer, choreographer and artistic director, founder and choreographer of TL Collective. Trained in hip-hop and ballet, she created her own genre of dance called Expand Practice, drawing out emotion from the core and creating varied physical shapes and textures as expressions of authentic self. His quirky style of exaggerated facial expressions, gestures and athletic theatrics sets his work apart. Taylor created his own technique and built The TL Collective from the ground up. She received the inaugural Springboard EMERGE Choreography Award, was named Dance Magazine’s “25 to Watch” in 2019, and graced the cover of Dance Magazine in April 2020. Most recently, she received the People’s Choice Award from San Francisco for the “best solo artist”. Taylor’s work has been featured at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, Broad Stage, Ford Amphitheater, Boston Institute of Contemporary Art, and more. Along with the launch of her company, Taylor was commissioned to choreograph and teach with the Rambert Dance Company, the Getty Museum, BODYTRAFFIC, Springboard Danse Montreal/Gibney Dance Company, Cleo Parker Robinson Dance, B12 Festival Berlin, Carlos Acosta’s Acosta Danza, and Moreover. . Upcoming commissions include the Martha Graham Dance Company and a co-commission from Jacobs Pillow and the American Dance Festival.

The TL Collective was founded by Taylor in 2016, ignited by his passion for creating engaging and diverse work. Following the successful LA launch of a premiere work, Molecular Fuel, Taylor has continued to create new works that have been performed in intimate spaces throughout LA. PopMadness (2017), SeeColour (2018) and ROSEWOOD (2018). Due to rave reviews, in 2017 Taylor was commissioned to perform her work; PopMadness in Grand Performances which further exposed his work to the greater Los Angeles community. Since then, The TL has consolidated its repertoire with commissions and presentations from Grand Park, Ford Amphitheatre, The Broad Stage, The ACE hotel and Jacob’s Pillow. The TL Collective is now emerging as one of Los Angeles’ emerging dance companies.

The company is known for its fusion of contemporary dance and theatrical hip-hop, including elements of groove and acrobatics accompanied by high level athleticism.

The dancers in the ensemble are: Marlie Couto, Maddie Lacambra, Kaia Makihara, Madison Tanguay, Micaela Taylor and Jessie Lee Thorne.

During its stay at the Weis Center, the company will present three works: Pull, Drift and MisFit. This three-part program focuses on evolving a mindset, of being pulled, adrift, to realize who they are.

Pull focuses on the twists and turns of life, focusing on a person who begins their journey with melancholy and focus, but ends with hope and contemplation. Seamlessly transitioning to Drift, the audience sees the layers of emotion peeling away.

Drift seeks to demonstrate an individual’s ever-evolving relationship to self, while exposing a personal season of personal growth.

MisFit inhabits six dancers who question their identity and their integration into society while remaining true to themselves. Focus on the concept that everyone, at some point in their life, feels like a misfit. Through a journey of stages of different styles of music and dance… do they find each other?

The show is made possible, in part, by an Arts Forward grant from the Association of Performing Arts Professionals (APAP), made possible with support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Tickets are $25 for adults, $20 for subscribers and seniors 62 and older, $15 for youth 18 and under, non-Bucknell students, and for Bucknell employees and retirees, and $10 for Bucknell students.

A dance ensemble aims to expand its reach on campus

On September 8, 2022, Loyola held auditions for the dance teacher Knight Kai‘s ensemble, which aims for students to develop their performance skills through the art of dance.
These are the second semester auditions for all. Knight seeks to grow its overall curriculum on campus, adding new elements each semester until it is a full program.
“Last semester we got it up and running. We have established that there is interest on campus for this program. This semester, I will bring visiting professors to work with them and push towards the development of performance works.
First-year musical theater student Gaby Hawk said she was nervous about auditioning because she doesn’t consider herself the best dancer. However, Hawk wants to develop both her skills and her confidence, and said she is looking for a fun environment to grow up in. “I’m excited to put myself out there,” she said.
Knight is looking for students to learn that dance is all about joy, healing and work all rolled into one.
“Starting with auditioning, then practicing and hopefully performing, I want them to experience the life of a dancer,” Knight said. She added that this involves engaging in weekly rehearsals throughout the season and the dancers challenging themselves for personal growth. “I want them to be proud to be part of the ensemble and to develop a dance community by growing and performing together.”
Annie Figueroa, a junior major in psychology, danced for 12 years and wanted to get back into the activity after a two-year hiatus from dancing.
“Dancing has been a big part of my life, as I’ve taken many different types of dance classes and participated in a competitive team over the years,” Figueroa said. And though it was sometimes chaos, Figueroa said she missed the cohesive dance routine.
“I find dancing to be the perfect way to motivate myself to move my body while still being fun and enjoyable.”
Figueroa is also seeking closure from this set, as the COVID-19 pandemic prevented her from having one last dance recital before graduating from high school. “The year of dance was cut short and I was not ready to say goodbye to such an important part of my life. Dance is something that has given me great joy for years, as a person who likes to gamble but is not a good public speaker.
According to Knight, the last semester felt like a test—she had a desire for the set but wasn’t sure it would be received by the students. Knight was then blown away when 30 students attended. “There were a lot of new faces and I am happy that this program is so well received and desired by our students. This semester, instead of feeling like a test, I feel challenged to build this program to be the best it can be so that it fully serves our students! »
Knight aims to have a mini-performance to present by the end of the semester.
