The Meadows School of the Arts is home to some of the best dancers in the nation. In fact, a top 10 listings sight of various subjects, ZOOMtens.com, ranked Meadows number six for “10 Best Colleges for Dance Performance in the U.S.”
Meadow’s dancers not only have amazing talent in dance, but in choreography as well. Several times a year, dancers in the Division of Dance create their own original choreography to showcase in the Brown Bag Series concerts.
“I love when the students gets to come and see what the dance majors have been doing locked away in the basement of Meadows.” said senior dance and accounting major Megan Cotton, “It’s so up close and personal.”
Brown Bag is a lunchtime event where dancers perform about 10-15 dance numbers. Students gather in an informal setting, either walking by to and from class, hanging over the balcony or sitting crisscross on the floor in front of the dancers, right up close and personal.
These innovative dance works range from ballet to hip-hop to modern and jazz.
“This year’s concert will be featuring a very diverse set of dances; there is a ballet piece inspired by the 40’s, a tap piece and even a tango,” said junior dance major and psychology minor Emma Schultz.
The series will begin Monday, Oct. 6 and end Friday, Oct. 10 in the Bob Hope Theatre Lobby in the Owen Arts Center. Monday, Wednesday and Friday’s performances will be at 12 p.m. and Tuesday and Thursday at 12:30 p. m. Price is free for students.
