Dancers At Work Program B
April 21st - 22nd at 8pm
April 22nd at 2pm
Welcome to Marymount Manhattan College Dance Department’s student showing of works in progress. This performance also includes two works for our Freshman Bachelor of Fine Arts candidates, choreographed by Monique Smith, and our Bachelor of Arts candidates, choreographed by Jazlynn Goudy.
These performances represent the works of students who have an interest in pursuing choreography beyond the classroom experience. Several different levels of choreographic proficiency are represented. Limited in time and space, each choreographer’s rehearsals ran twice a week for a total of four and a half hours, forcing them to work quickly and efficiently; a skill necessary for the professional world of choreography.
The students’ responsibility extends beyond the choreographic process, incorporating all aspects of the production from costumes and sets to publicity and programming.
We are proud of what the students have accomplished and hope you enjoy the results of their hard work.
There will be a 10-minute intermission
PLEASE SILENCE OR TURN OFF ALL CELL PHONES.

We want to acknowledge the land that our institution is on - to recognize the violent history and legacy of the area currently known through colonial knowledge as the United States and known through Indigenous knowledge asTurtle Island. Marymount Manhattan College is situated on the Lenape island of Mannahatta in Lenapehoking, the Lenape homeland.
We pay respect to Lenape peoples, past, present, and future, and for their continued presence in the homeland and throughout the Lenape diaspora. We offer our care and gratitude to the land, water, and air of Lenapehoking and are committed to resisting colonialism and imbalance with Mother Earth. In particular, through this land acknowledgment, and as a dance department, we reaffirm our commitment to working against colonialism.
We would also like to take this opportunity to pay homage to our ancestors, no matter what culture you are from, for it is through them that we are here, living, moving, and breathing to do our creative-pedagogical-scholarly work, i.e., shaping dance for the twenty-first century and hopefully showing how bodies in movement might bring about a future where we can see just and equitable treatment of everyone.
