I know it has been forever since I have posted to the site but I wanted to share, over the next few days, the incredible year we have had here at Scona Dance Co. To start us off, let’s take a look at our amazing Pathways show…Identity!
Bob and Piper opened the show as our MC’s this year! And it was the first time we saw dancers doing double duty as MC’s. They did an outstanding job!! Piper then rushed backstage to perform in our show opener – On the Town. It was the perfect way to transition from last year’s theme which was Cityscapes into this year’s and this dance was all about how your identity changes when you enter a great, big, new city!
Another amazing piece by dynamic duo Vic Modine and Anastasia Rozhdestvensky, Smooth Criminal! Nice Russian Kirkland!!
Here is Dance 25/35 Block 1 in ‘Bright Lights,’ a piece about the many identities we find in Grand Central station.
Kelsea Peters won the Choreography award for her dance IMPRESSions.
No one could stop talking about this duet, choreographed by Georgia Evans-King! It’s Oh So Quiet…
I could post literally EVERY photo from this duo, because they were performing head to toe and making such clear choices. It was a joy to watch this story of love!
Act 2 opened with ‘The Wall’ a contemporary number that examined the dividing lines that can affect who we are and where we ‘belong.’
For the first time in years, we had a solely tap numbers choreographed by Vic!
Teresa Williams’ piece Triune broke our hearts every time we watched it. Incredibly smart choreography with intricate pathways, beautiful lines and unique movement.
Leslie Sobchyshyn returned yet again with another intense contemporary piece ‘Out of the Pack,’ challenging her dedicated dancers.
Dance 15 performed a spoken word about identity in High School, which was inspired by the novel ‘The Perks of being a Wallflower’
And to finish off the show, we took our audience on a journey from Heaven into Purgatory and then Hell…combining all three Dance 25/35 classes. It was an epic performance!!
And of course…FINALE!
A big thank you to Uwe Welz for the incredible photos…this is only a tiny slice of all the images he captured.
And of course, a huge thank you to all our amazing Scona Dance Co. members…what a ride!
