What was the inspiration for "Dreamers"?
We choose the title "Dreamers" for our show because we thought of our show as a dream. A dream is a vision and each choreographer starts the semester off with a vision for her dance, and as the semester continues towards the end, we begin to see our vision become reality and our dreams for our dances come true. We are dreamers in our dances, hoping and dreaming that our passion and love for dance comes across to you, our audience.
That's a really tough one! Each number is so different and taps into a different emotion. I think I'm most excited for "Work Song," choreographed by Lianna Scott. It's a beautiful contemporary number and I think the audience will really love it.
What's your favorite Expressions memory from this semester of rehearsals?
Every rehearsal brings a new surprise, I find myself laughing harder each week as we become closer as friends. My favorite memory during rehearsal was when we all played the game "Lovers Leap." It was so nice to see everyone let go for a bit, we were all out of breath because we were laughing so hard.
Ok so we clearly know "Dreamers" is going to be amazing! Give us the deets!
"Dreamers" is a great show! I'm so excited for everyone to see it. We have some really exciting numbers this year. For one of the dances the Satin Dolls are singing instead of us using music and in another dance we have some Ramblers that come out and dance with us. It's great to have some involvement with other groups.
