#var:page_name# cover

Led by Crystal Pite, world-renowned choreographer and Artistic Director of Kidd Pivot, the Student Choreographic Program offers ten second year dancers the opportunity to create their own choreographic works under Crystal’s mentorship. Now in its fifth edition, this year brought the new challenge of collaboration as the ten dancers were paired up to create their works. Ideas discussed within the process include: methods of generating choreographic material, the relationship between concept and physicality, the shared responsibilities within a collaboration, and discovery of artistic voice. This year also included an emphasis on the transition of work from the studio to the stage, as the Student Choreographic Showcase is being held in a theatre for the first time.

Come join us April 26th, 2018, as these new works will be presented.

Tickets: $10 (at the door)
Doors at 7:00 pm // Show at 7:30 pm
Talk back after the show with the choreographers.
Refreshments and snacks will be able to be purchased at the event.
