DanceFest 2008 under the Artistic Coordination of Sherrie Barr – a collection of new works commissioned for the MSU Repertory Dance Concert.
DanceFest, the 2008 main stage Repertory Dance Concert, will be celebrating the creative energies of the MSU Dance Program. The concert, showcasing the artistry of the dancers, will highlight the premiers of dances choreographed by guest artists. Through creating these new works, choreographers will be sharing their artistic knowledge for dance making with the students. A unique feature of DanceFest will be the appearance of Vincent Thomas, artistic director of VT Dance based in Baltimore, Maryland. Acclaimed as a charismatic solo performer, Thomas will be dancing one of his signature solo works, accompanied by a cellist from the MSU College of Music. DanceFest promises to be a celebration of all the arts.
