USD Theatre Closes Season with Spring Dance Showcase
The showcase highlights original pieces by 13 undergraduate student choreographers. Their creative scholarship is overseen by Patricia Downey, professor of dance, who serves as the director of the dance showcase as well as the primary choreographic mentor and teacher of dance technique. Together she worked with Jonathan Allender-Zivic, assistant professor of lighting design, Caitlin Quinn, assistant professor of costume design, Bethany Padron, costume studio manager, Victor Shonk, associate professor of scenic design, Scott Mollman, production manager and associate professor of technical theatre, and other USD faculty to mentor the creative scholarship of over 50 USD students involved in the showcase as choreographers, dancers, designers and technicians.
Nearly 35 of these students are involved in the showcase as choreographers and/or dancers. The majority of these students are performance majors in the theatre department or dance minors. Of the 15 pieces to be presented, 13 have been created by student choreographers and nearly all performers are USD students.
Tickets are available at the door the day of the performance for a free will donation.
