For the first time in three years, Meredith’s dance program will hold its annual performance of DanceWorks in person. The program, to be held on April 22-24, features 32 dances created by 52 dance students. 

The concert will take place in Jones Auditorium and will be available via in-person and livestream formats.

“Our students are so excited for a ‘real’ DanceWorks for the first time since 2019,” said Carol Finley, professor of dance and head of the department of dance and theatre. “The concert weekend will feature performances by Meredith students with choreography by students, faculty, and guests.”

One of Finley’s senior students created a rehearsal reel to help promote the concert.

Finley said she is thrilled that her students are able to participate in person this year for many reasons.

“There is so much community knowledge and so many backstage traditions handed down from year to year, from dancer to dancer in DanceWorks,” said Finley. “So it is extra special that we are able to have the show in person again while our seniors are still here to keep the traditions alive.”
