Dance Department hosts free dance film night

The ACC Dance Department is hosting a free dance film night at 6 p.m. Thursday, February 26, in the Rio Grande Campus dance studio, Room 130.

Dance faculty Julie Nathanieslz will guide the discussion based on the dance films, which include “Nora,” about a dancer from Zimbabwe, and selected works by choreographer and filmmaker Pooh Kaye.

“Dance film night is about giving students access to work we wouldn’t be able to see in our community. It’s the opportunity to broaden the scope of what we call dance,” says Dance Adjunct Professor Darla Johnson.

The dance department hosts a free film night every semester in the dance studio to allow students the opportunity to grow as artists.

“Think of it as choreographic thinking. We look at the results of different choreographic processes,” says Nathanieslz.

Dance film night is free and open to the public. Non-dancers are strongly encouraged to attend. The evening explores composition and creativity as it can be applied to all the arts, not just dance.

The Austin Community College Dance Department has an “open-door” policy. All students, regardless of previous dance training or experience, are encouraged to attend classes. The department offers the students an opportunity to investigate the dance field and supports them in finding their own niche within the field. Based in a Contemporary Modern style and recognizing each individual’s unique life experience and cultural background, the program encourages students to express themselves through the creation and performance of dance works. Opportunities are also available to be a “company member” while working with professional choreographers/instructors in the Performance Workshop class.
