NEW DIRECTIONS is an annual opportunity for student dance makers, designers, and stage managers to collaborate in the creation of an evening of new original dance works. This year features a diverse selection of works, ranging from solos, to small and larger group pieces. A synthesis of varied cultural influences and dance styles ripples through the program, from hip hop inspired to classical Indian dance, ballet, jazz, modern and contemporary, showcasing the artistic visions and unique voices of these young dancemakers.
