The GWC dance department has brought together the talents of faculty, students and guest dancers in a concert that promises to move you to the beat of the music and the heartbeat of the dance.  Many styles and genre of dance will be presented from modern to hip hop to jazz and ballet.  The palette of styles and colors reflects the choreographers’ diverse backgrounds.  Nannette Brodie and Kelly Ray are the directors of the concert and brings both new works for the GWC students as well as reconstructions of earlier choreographies.  Also included in the program are dances by faculty members, Laura Smyth and Erica Villalpando.  All the students of dance at GWC will participate in this concert starting with beginning dancers through advanced dancers.  Ms. Brodie has prepared an earlier work for the GWC Modern Ensemble that is in the Tango character style called Tangoropa.  From the repertoire of Nannette Brodie Dance Theatre will be some favorites:  like an excerpt fromStrength in Sorrow, London is London, and a new work for their Veterans Project.

The GWC choreography students have been preparing their work since February.  Making their debut as new or returning choreographers this year are Anneliese Rodriguez, Veronica Dimitrov, Kevin Rivera, Kiara Rodriguez, Devin Mata, Augustina Rios, David Nguyen, Terry Phan and Miranda Short.  Their work is charming and full of the passion of new choreographers.

Join us again this May for the tasty dance treats from Golden West College’s Dance Department in YES! WE CAN DANCE. It will most certainly MOVE YOU.
