University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music Dance students present original choreography in the annual Student Choreographer Showcase March 1-3 in the Cohen Family Studio Theater. Admission is free but reservations are required; tickets become available at noon on Monday, Feb. 26 through the CCM Box Office.

The Choreographer Showcase is directed by Assistant Professor of Dance André Megerdichian and presents an exciting mixed bill of choreography from classical ballet to contemporary dance. The featured student choreographers are Molly-Grace Lewis, Brenna Sweeny, Hope Friedman, Amelia Harris, Alexandria Wright, Hannah Holtsclaw and Erin Donnelly.

Students are reimagining what can be done on point shoes and are commissioning original music for their choreography, Megerdichian says. They have collaborated with CCM set and lighting designers and are “pushing the boundaries of expected norms.”

“The works are bold, imaginative and incredibly moving,” Megerdichian adds. “The sheer variety of work combined and their emotional resonance will keep audiences at the edge of their seats. It’s a beautiful show.”
