VCU Dance is pleased to present the SALON, Wednesday, November 29 at 7:00pm in the VCU Dance Depot Annex Studio, behind 814 West Broad Street. The event is free and open to the public.

The informal showing includes new and in-progress works in Dance, including film and live performance. Audience feedback on the work will be facilitated by visiting iCubed scholar MK Abadoo and informed by MacArthur “Genius” Liz Lerman’s Critical Response process

This is the first VCU Dance public presentation of freshly conceived student work during the academic year. It provides Dance students the opportunity to present and receive feedback on new works with the intention of then going back to the studio for deeper investigation of their creative process and ideas. Audience members are encouraged to share observations and reactions with the student artists.

The Salon is the third event in the 2017-2018 performance season. The presenting program of VCU Dance is committed to building and engaging dance audiences in the University and Richmond communities while providing opportunities for artists to present and create work.

Recognized by professional dancers and choreographers as “a place where things are happening,” Virginia Commonwealth University’s Department of Dance and Choreography offers a vibrant and stimulating atmosphere where students prepare for careers in dance.
