"Time's Up." Dance Showcase 2018

Time's Up.

Dance can also reflect aspects of society and raise awareness about important social issues.  This year's Dance Showcase featured a repertoire of 23 dances of various genres. There were three particularly poignant pieces: Elephants, Growing Up in a Girl's Perspective and This Bitter Earth, choreographed by Sierra Gibb ’20 and Madison Sheward ’18, which explored the issues of domestic violence and sexual harassment.

    guest appearances
In the weeks leading up to the show, the "Time's Up." theme gathered interest and momentum. Dance captains Anna Natsu ’18 and Tsubasa Yamawaki ’18, engaged by the theme and eager to use the techniques they learned in art class, spent many hours silk screening "Time's Up" t-shirts for the dancers and technical crew to wear as costumes for the finale. It was inspiring to watch our students turn their passion and compassion into action and, in so doing, raised awareness and sparked important conversations about a critical issue.
