Spring Dance Concert by Hendrix Dance Ensemble

CONWAY, Ark. (March 19, 2018) — The Hendrix College Dance Ensemble on Friday, March 30 and Saturday, March 31 will present performances of its Spring Concert in Staples Auditorium. Both performances will begin at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public.

Directed by Brigitte Rogers, associate professor of dance and chair of the Department of Theatre Arts and Dance, the program includes several pieces that are choreographed, performed, and designed by Hendrix students. This level of involvement provides opportunities for students to apply their creative energy and engage in artistic growth through developing these pieces.

One of the Dance Ensemble’s selections is choreographed to “Gold Touch I,” a ballet based on King Midas and his childlike delight in transforming objects into gold, composed by Hendrix Professor of Music Dr. Karen Griebling. The Hendrix College Chamber Orchestra will play this piece to accompany the Dance Ensemble, and also will perform it at its own Spring Concert, set for April 23.

Members of the 2017-18 Hendrix College Dance Ensemble are Kathryn Bolt ’18, Mary Cook ’20, Brian Earles ’18, Grace Featherston ’19, Elaina Heikes ’20, Brianna LeBoeuf ’19, Erika Levy ’18, Mallory Magruder ’21, Yasmin Newman ’18, Brandon Oglesby-Swett ’20, Lauren Porter ’21, Rosie Ronca ’20, Erin Salter ’18, Aly Savage ’21, and Mady Shaddox ’20.
