April 24-25: Dance ensemble celebrates 15 years

FREDERICK, Md.—Two nights of concerts, featuring Hood College’s student dance troupe, alumni and special guest artists, will mark the 15th anniversary of the Hood College Dance Ensemble.

The concerts will be held April 24 and 25 at 7:30 p.m. in Hodson Auditorium in Rosenstock Hall and are free and open to the public.

In addition to the dance group, guest artists include the Souls of the Feet Dance Company; former dance ensemble captain Abigale Mills, who choreographed a jazz piece to Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk;” guest artist Eric Stone, who created a piece to Hinder’s “Lips of an Angel;” and a piece by Hood College Director of Dance Fran Marsili, entitled “Twilight Zone,” originally performed in the 2001 Hood dance concert.

The program will include a tap number to Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off,” choreographed by dance ensemble co-captain Katelyn Sims; a modern piece to Sia’s “Breathe Me,” created by Emily Kreisler; a hip-hop number to Beyoncé’s “7-11,” choreographed by Dominique Byrd, Adaire Crabbe, Taylor Tolbard and Andrea Christmas; a contemporary piece to Bruno Mars’ “Natalie,” composed by Byrd; a jazz selection to Beyoncé’s “Grown Women,” choreographed by Crabbe; a modern piece to Pink’s “Glitter In The Air,” by Kristen Geatz; a lyrical number to John Legend and Common’s “Glory,” choreographed by Kreisler, Byrd and Crabbe; and a contemporary piece to Colbie Caillat’s “Fast Car,” created by Mills.
