UMOVES LETS DANCE STUDENTS’ CREATIVITY SHINE AT THE CLARICE

By Setota Hailemariam | UMD Writer's Bloc

"This university’s undergraduate dance concert, UMoves, is an annual ritual, and is a quintessential part of The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center’s spring programming, but it differs greatly from the other recitals held there.

"The concert, which ran this weekend from May 4-6, was almost entirely choreographed by students in the School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance studies, with the exception of the performance’s opening piece, titled “All ways fall, never fall.” It was developed by Artists-in-Residence at this university, Xan Burley and Alex Springer.

"Sixteen dancers starred in the fittingly-named piece, a whirlwind of constant motion in which it would’ve been easy to ram into a fellow performer — but they managed to navigate around the stage without any collisions."
