The Charter Arts Dance Department presents its annual Young Choreographers in Concert (YCC), April 1-2, 2022.
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 inspired by a theme of their choosing and sets their work on freshman, sophomore and junior dancers. This year’s performance features twenty-nine choreographers and more than 70 dancers.
The students’ choreography features a wide range of relevant themes including gentrification and its effects on communities, the bleaching of coral reefs, the political divide in our country, dealing with a mental block as shown through the inspiration of diving, and the fear of growing up.
Concert co-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. A physical and visual expression of the students’ inner feeling and interests that is always an exciting and entertaining surprise to watch!”
