BACKGROUND: Fifteen undergraduate choreographers present 13 original works â€“ ranging from tap and ballet to modern/contemporary â€“ in this annual showcase of talent. Assistant Professor Loretta Livingston serves as artistic director for this 90-minute program.
The UCI Department of Dance was founded on the principle that aspiring professionals need substantial experience in more than one form of dance and in more than one academic area to succeed in the field of dance. Dance at UCI reflects the research and preservation of dance history, the exploration of choreography in the present, and the cutting edge technology of the future. Student choreography, teaching, and scholarship benefit from exposure to many styles and approaches, all aiming to inspire and prepare the next generation of dance professionals.
