Coker's Repetory Dance Company travels to Charleston

Thursday there was a bit more activity near my office that is normal at 7:05 in the morning. Six to eight dancers came through the doors apparently full of energy and excitement (unusual for that time of day for any students). The company was headed to Charleston to work with students at the Charleston School of the Arts. Erin Leigh, the professor who works with the Repertory Dance Company, said this was a way for the dancers to begin to get experience similar to that enjoyed by professional dance companies. The dancers performed a full program of guest artist and student pieces and they also designed and taught master classes for the dance students at the Charleston School. In describing the event, Professor Leign said, "This experience is modeled after the community outreach work that most professional dance companies do. It also provides students at CSOA an opportunity to see what our program offers and the type of work our undergraduates do." This was a great example of students getting real-world experience while contributing to the good of community and also getting in some recruiting for Coker.

I happened to be in my office as the Company returned about 5 p.m. The dancers must have worked hard. All the energy of early morning had disappeared. They obviously had put in a full day of work that drained all that early-in-the-day energy.

I was hoping to have a photo with this post but I have not yet figured how to transfer a phone photo to my computer.

The dance students who went to Charleston on April 1 included:
Eimile Davis, Qaadir Hicks, Devin Jennings, Amy Nelson, Kaitlin Owens,Tabitha Quick and Meagan Stone
