Praised by the Richmond Times-Dispatch for its “range and versatility,” this pre-professional ensemble will present a kaleidoscope of works by national and international guest artists. As part of a cultural exchange residency, noted Chinese choreographer Wei Chen will stage a special dance for the company. Known for “choreographic offerings from the silly to the sublime,” JMU’s premier dance group will also perform works by Carol Finley from Raleigh, N.C., James Hansen and JMU alumna Donna Costello from New York, and Virginia choreographer Alan Arnett. Rounding out the program are new works by local choregrapher Heather Lundy, and Shane O’Hara, dance faculty member and artistic director of the Virginia Repertory Dance Company.
