ENGAGING COLLEGE DANCE CONCERT BRINGS NEW WORKSConcerts & Performances

Among them will be The Last Tango, which is a tango duet choreographed and danced by Fernanda Alvarado with her partner, Pablo Ortiz; Jennifer Ima’s contemporary workUnconditional, created for a group of six dancers and exploring themes of struggle and endurance; Mae-Lynn Flores’ work, Gitana influenced by her flamenco background and set to Por Mi Puerta No Lo Pasen by Rosalia; Leylani Machado’s vibrant group work inspired by Latin themes and social dances; and Isaiah Valentin’s powerful work, Generation Lockdown, with music by Max Richter, which is a theatrical dance piece exploring the effects of violence in our culture.

Billig’s work has also been selected for presentation at this year’s ScreenDance Miami Film Festival in January, 2020 – audiences can see it first at New World School of the Arts!
