“The Light in the Dark” dance minor concert

BLOOMSBURG—Bloomsburg University will host “The Light in the Dark: The 9th Annual Dance Minor Concert” on Sunday, April 28, at 3 p.m. and Monday, April 29, at 7:30 p.m. in Carver Hall, Gross Auditorium. This event is free and open to the public.

“The Light in the Dark: The 9th Annual Dance Minor Concert” features seven pieces choreographed by Bloomsburg University students and faculty, each exploring a unique perspective and theme. The content explored through varied dance styles includes miscarriage, mental health, depression/anxiety, abusive relationships, standing proudly in your self-essence, suicide, degenerative illness and aging, and consumption/environmental concerns.

Since the concert raises some challenging questions, audience members are invited to engage in a Talk-Back with the artists after the Sunday performance. The concert title, “The Light in the Dark,” reflects the perspective of the choreographers that they create hope when they bring attention and voice to difficult matters.

The choreographers include students Sera Doughton, Angela Peiffer, Nicole Gagliardi, Briana Gist, Eliza Treese, Emel Rasim, and Professor Julie Petry, Artistic Director.

This event is sponsored by CGA and the College of Liberal Arts.
