SU DanceWorks showcases lively array of student choreography
Student-only dance troupe DanceWorks showcased their choreography on Friday and Saturday during their “Walk of Fame” showcase, held at 8 p.m. in Goldstein Auditorium. The spring showcase featured 18 different dance numbers with styles ranging from hip hop, lyrical and jazz to tap and contemporary.
Family and friends packed the auditorium on Friday night in support of the 97 dancers and 20 choreographers. The show included a diverse array of dances to songs like “Feeling Good” by Michael Bublé, “Anaconda” by Nicki Minaj and “Green Light” by Lorde. The show also featured colorful lights and theatrical smoke, adding to the ambiance of the performances.
After last year’s virtual spring showcase “DanceWorks Universe,” co-head of the production team Ruby Apicella expressed the joy of performing in person.
“It’s been amazing being able to do everything in person and performing in front of a live audience is definitely a completely different experience,” Apicella said. “It’s super electrifying when you’re up there and you know that all these people are here to support you. It’s so much better than having it be virtual.”
