The School at TU Dance Center 2021 Spring Student Showcase VIDEO

The showcase –originally broadcasted on June 22, 2021– will include works featuring the students from the Children & Teen and Pre-Professional Programs that were filmed at the beautiful Raspberry Island in St. Paul, Minnesota. These works were choreographed by TU Dance Center Teaching Artists, and include a new work, entitled Reset, by international guest artist, Marcus Jarrell Willis who worked with the students virtually from Cardiff, Wales over the past year. Reset is a choreographic work, made for film, which reflects not only our current state of being in these challenging times, but also offers insight into the journey that lies ahead for TU Dance. We hope you enjoy this video as we recognize the beautiful work of our students and faculty, and offer a special congratulations to this year’s Pre-Professional student graduates!
