Spring Dance Concert

The Spring 2018 Faculty Dance concert will feature Hofstra faculty choreographers and special guests. Eleo Pomare’s masterpiece, Las Desenamoradas, will be performed. The dance has been reconstructed by Professors Dyane Harvey-Salaam (winner of a 2017 Bessie Award) and Robin Becker, longtime members of the Eleo Pomare Dance Company, who performed the piece themselves over the course of more than a decade. 

Other Dances Featured in the Spring Concert:  


On The Way, by Hofstra faculty member Robbie Cook, is a solo choreographed to the iconic second piano prelude by George Gershwin.


Sanguis Apparatus, also created by Robbie Cook, is a piece for eight dancers set to the electropop music of James Blake.


Figure Dances Using dance steps and dance notations circa 1711, Baroque movement specialist and Adjunct Professor Caroline Copeland created this new work for 10 dancers, set to Mark Mellits’ contemporary composition, “9 Miniatures.”


Monkey Mind Anita Feldman has created a tap piece utilizing various spaces and levels inside and outside the proscenium of the stage. This dance is inspired by the fragmented nature of the music Lick by Julia Wolfe, and our fragmented, difficult-to-control and unpredictable “monkey minds.”


Composite, choreographed by Adjunct Professor Heather Waldon, this is a collection of dance phrases structured into a moving collage.
