Lyndon Institute Dance Company Presents Spring Recital

April 15th, 2019

The public is invited to enjoy the talents of the Lyndon Institute Dance Department during their Spring Dance Recital which will be Friday, May 17th at 7:00 p.m. in the Auditorium at Lyndon Institute. Admission is by donation.  

This spring’s performance will feature students in the Dance Techniques and Elements, Ballet, and Jazz dance classes; the auditioned-based Dance Company; Independent Study; Dance Aide; dance club, pointe club, hip hop club, and tap dance club. 

Choreographies will showcase learning in the foundational studies of dance technique and artistry (ballet, modern and jazz) and will demonstrate students’ skills and knowledge of these studies through the use of the elements of dance (time, space and energy) to highlight compassion expressed through movement. The various dance styles and genres highlighted in the Spring Dance Recital include: post-modern, modern contemporary, tap dance, swing jazz, lyrical jazz, traditional jazz, lyrical ballet, contemporary ballet, jazz hip hop, and interpretive dance. All of the choreographies featured on May 17th were made as part of the LI dance curricular studies which align to the National Core Dance Standards and were collaborative products by the LI dance students, the LI dance teacher, Rebecca McGregor, and McGregor’s substitute while on maternity leave, Elizabeth Mahnker.

“Every year, dancers in the LI Dance Department study various styles and techniques of dance and work diligently to demonstrate the application of dance across various disciplines.  The students also focus on life-long wellness and explore dance in relation to personal growth, self-evaluation, and goal setting,” said McGregor.
