Virtual Young Choreographers in Concert (YCC) is the culminating event, or final exam, for the Senior Dance Composition course. Each senior student creates original choreography that is cohesively based on a theme of their choosing. They then cast dancers from the freshman, sophomore and junior classes. This year’s show features 25 senior choreographers and close to 85 dancers. Topics are wide-ranging, such as exploring gender norms and how they influence society, the effects of organ donation, tie-dye and color psychology, the mother/daughter bond and human fascination with different forms of entertainment, just to name a few.
Concert director, Amy Berry says, “YCC is an invaluable opportunity for students to find their creative selves and to see an artistic process through from conception to the stage or this year to the screen. We are so proud of our students for taking on the challenge of directing the filming process and video editing! YCC is a physical and visual expression of the students’ inner feelings and interests that is always an exciting and entertaining surprise to watch!”
Streamed Show Dates: March 26 at 7 PM & March 27 at 2 PM and 7 PM, March 28 at 2 PM
