For more than twenty-five years, George School’s Dance Eclectic has been entertaining audiences each spring. This year, the performance features ten original works from student choreographers, several of which are International Baccalaureate (IB) submissions.
“Dance is unique as an art form,” said Barb Kibler, dance director. “Students are vulnerable as they use their bodies to bring their work to audiences.”
Dance Eclectic is a combination of dances choreographed by both students and Barb. Student choreographed performances include Exploring Modern Societies’ Relationship with Technology and Love and Heartbreak. Barb’s pieces are related to the theme of gods and goddesses. “Class dances were focused on the characteristics of several of the gods: Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades,” she said. “The beginning dance is about how Earth married Sky and brought about the birth of the world.”
Dance Eclectic will take place on April 12 and 13 at 7:30 p.m. in Walton Center. Both performances are free and open to the public.
