Fall 2019 Dance Concert

The CCBC Dance Company presents the Fall 2019 Dance Concert exploring new and restaged works. The company welcomes guest artist Runqiao Du, Artistic Director of Towson University Dance Company, who has created work for CCBC. Melinda Blomquist, Artistic Director of the CCBC Dance Company, has created work for the Towson University Dance Company.

The fall concert will feature excerpts from a new evening-length work entitled EMERGE: Coming to Light. This collaborative piece between the Community College of Baltimore County Dance Company (CCBC) and the Towson University Dance Company (TUDC) has engaged both companies in an innovative artistic exchange. Each company is setting pieces on student dancers at both locations, and combining their creative efforts to share the stage in a collaborative work to be premiered at Towson University during their Fall Concert on November 20 – 24, 2019.

Audiences will be delighted with performances that include a tap piece choreographed by Adrienne Kraus Latanishen which gives insight into the mind of creative-types attempting to pay attention in class. Choreographer Kristi Schaffner presents two different pieces that explore how viewpoints shape our understanding of our world. One piece looks from a woman’s viewpoint and suggests how, through supporting one another, we are familiar with each other and have a greater understanding of self. The second piece, a duet, looks through the lens of two people who don’t know each other as they discover the potential for moving forward to connect with each other.

Paij Hardy, a student choreographer, takes us on an exploration of what happens when an individual “unplugs” from the world and what discoveries happen when we turn off the outside influences in our lives.

CCBC Dance Professor Tommy Parlon delves into the concepts of the Divine Feminine and the Divine Masculine energies with “Refuge,” discovering how both energies must work in tandem in order to create balance in the world.

The Fall 2019 Dance Concert offers a high-energy collaboration you won’t want to miss. Join us, and see what emerges!
