Emory Dance presents new student work

The Emory Dance Company presents the work of nine student choreographers in “I Prefer to Call It a Nudge,” April 22-24 in the Schwartz Center, Dance Studio.

Sandra Chan’s work examines disparities between Chinese and American cultures, while junior Nirvi Shah presents a quartet about effectively sharing ideas between cultures.

Sanet Steyn’s new work melds karate and jazz dance movement styles, exploring the balance between strength and grace in the feminine form.

In a sextet of interweaving and intermittent connections, senior Kaitlyn Pados explores how timing and groupings of bodies can shape relationships. Similarly inspired by interpersonal events, Leigh Ann Kabatra presents a trio following a relationship’s deterioration from loving closeness to unbearable tension.

Alyssa Bruehlman’s work is a vivacious quintet to rag- and blues-style music. Also playing with music and character, senior Lindsay Reich choreographed a lively and humorous duet performed to George Gershwin's famous “Rhapsody in Blue.”

Tiffany Greenwood’s bold piece for seven dancers investigates the potential for subtlety and power within everyday events.

Junior Mohammad Zaidi investigates the fluid and sometimes bafflingly artificial barriers constructed by the performing arts.

Tickets are $10; $8 for Emory faculty, staff, alumni, Discount Category Members; $5 all students.
