APSU’s Summer Dance Concert is poetry in form and motion

 

summerdanceconcertDance is the noblest of the Arts. Using a human body as their canvas, a dancers’ performance treats the audience to a visual poetry written with their bodies in both form and motion. That is how I felt this evening when I watched the APSU Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts and the APSU Dance Program holding their Summer Dance Concert. One performance remains;  on Wednesday, August 12th, at 7:30PM, Clement Auditorium.

Tick leads the show with three dancers clad in green, Laquimah van Dunk, Alaina Runions, and Caitlin Proctor to the sounds of Tashweesh (interference) by Kronos Quartet.

Followed by the lovely Brittany Hardaway performing a ballet called Gentle Lullaby to the sounds of Se Ymnumen by George Skaroulis. Many of the dancers held neutral expressions on their faces when they performed not so with Brittany. You could see her love and passion for dance etched on her face with every leap and pirouette.
