The second annual Nazareth College Arts Center Dance Festival presented a vibrant array of dance exploring the range of expression of the human body. More than 6,000 people participated in this year’s Dance Festival, an increase of 8% compared to last year.
This nine-day festival (which ran July 8-16) featured lectures, conversations and post-show talk-backs with the featured choreographers, master classes, community dances, parades, free outdoor performances, main stage performances, an archival exhibition showcasing materials from more than 40 years of dance at the Arts Center, and a photography exhibition by Ken Riemer, featuring FuturPointe dancers.
Nazareth College President Daan Braveman says, "By all accounts, the 2011 Nazareth College Arts Center's Dance Festival was a tremendous success, for the College and for the Greater Rochester community. We offered high quality, diverse programming, showcased our local and regional talent, and provided area residents with the unique opportunity to see two distinct performances by our visiting guest artist, the nationally renowned Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company."
