The Department of Dance’s annual concert, Latin Xpressions, explores the diversity of the Latin experience through new choreography. An eclectic array of guest artists will cross cultural divides and create works encompassing ballet, modern, flamenco, and experimental dance, including: Carlos Pons Guerra from the UK-based DeNada Dance Theatre; Joel Valentin-Martínez, director of the dance program at Northwestern University; and Rosie Herrera, the artistic director of Rosie Herrera Dance Theatre in Miami. Faculty member Ron De Jesús will also feature our students with a kaleidoscope of various dance techniques to create a euphoric, serene, and ethereal world. Finally, under the direction of faculty member Jillian Hopper, BFA dance majors will create short interludes set to selections of popular and classical music from Latin America coordinated by faculty member Christian Matijas-Mecca.
