“the spirit and enthusiasm animating artistic composition or performance”
Junior Repertory Company's annual performance New Dances/New Choreographers is a student-run production by the sophomore, junior and senior dancers in DW's pre-professional dance company. The dances premiering are entirely choreographed and danced by the members of JRC, an experience that provides the students an opportunity that most dancers receive only in college.
The choreographers become completely immersed in the process of presenting a successful performance. The entire production- casting, costuming, lighting, music selection & editing through the finished choreography of original pieces to marketing of the performances all the way to putting on the performances themselves- is carried out by the students. ND/NC is possible thanks to the instruction and guidance of their instructor JRC Director Cady Cox.
Inspired to create dances full of vitality and energy, the choreographers chose the theme "Verve" -creating dances that speak to the infinite number of movement patterns and the endless creativity and vivacity of movement itself. In addition to these original dances, the entire company will perform a piece featuring the work of choreographer Julia Eichten of L.A. Dance Project, who was in residency at Dancers’ Workshop this February.
The photo shoot and Photography Gallery Reception was conceived, created and curated by the members of JRC. The photographs, all for sale, were photographed by graduating senior and JRC member Catherine Evans.
