Saturday and dancers at Coker College learning a new piece
Dancers, like athletes, don't always get weekends off. On January 23, this group of dancers was busy for much of the day in the large dance studio working on a piece being introduced by guest artist, Julie Mulvihill. The piece a light-hearted jitterbug reminiscent of early Charleston seemed to be getting a lot of energy from the dancers, even late on Saturday afternoon. The piece will be performed later in the year at the Coker Dance Concert. (The video is only a snippet of the entire piece but video always seems to get a bit more interest in a blog.)Mulvihill is an instructor of dance at Georgia College and State University. Dance Professors Angela Gallo and Erin Leigh of Coker regularly bring in guest artists to work with the Coker College dancers to ensure they are getting a variety of dance experiences and philosophies.
