We are excited to announce that NCSU Dance Company‘s piece Folding/Unfolding made it into the gala concert at the American College Dance Association Mid-Atlantic South Conference! The event takes place here in Raleigh – March 9-12, 2019 – just down the road at neighboring Meredith College.
Folding/Unfolding deals with femininity, body image, and beauty ideals. Dance Director Tara Mullins originally performed this piece by William Seigh as a junior at James Madison University and has reset it with permission for the concert.
You can also see this piece performed at the NCSU Dance Program Concert on April 11 and 12 at 8 p.m. Tickets are available online, by phone 919.515.1100, at Ticket Central (main floor lobby, Thompson Hall), or at the door on the night of the show.
About the American College Dance Association
The American College Dance Association’s primary focus is to support and promote the wealth of talent and creativity that is prominent throughout college and university dance departments. ACDA’s sponsorship of regional conferences and the national dance festival provides the venue for students and faculty to engage in three days of performances, workshops, panels, and master classes taught by instructors from around the region and country. The conferences also provide the unique opportunity for students and faculty to have their dance works adjudicated by a panel of nationally recognized dance professionals in an open and constructive forum. The conferences are the primary means for college and university dance programs to perform outside their own academic setting and be exposed to the diversity of the national college dance world. Many conferences culminate with the presentation of pieces selected for their exemplary artistic quality.
The American College Dance Association exists to support and affirm dance in higher education through regional conferences, the adjudication process, and national festivals. The educational mission of the Association is to foster creative potential, to honor multiple approaches to scholarly and creative research and activity, to promote excellence in choreography and/or performance, and to give presence and value to diversity in dance. The Association acts as a national membership service organization to strengthen the educational network for students and faculty within the academic dance community.
