May 27 – June 2, 2018


Dear Ohio State Dance Family,

After a whirlwind semester, it is uncharacteristically quiet around the department. But big things are brewing.

Our Barnett Theatre has just transformed from a proscenium stage to a theatre-in-the-round, inviting choreographers and designers to explore its wide-open spaces for our 50th anniversary concerts. Please join us on November 8-11 and 15-17 for our new evening-length work in the Barnett, guest artist Andre Zachery’s new work in the Motion Lab at ACCAD, the launch of the Ohio State Dance Interactive Digital Archive, and our alumni brunch on November 18. Reserve your tickets here for:

Ohio State Dance
…..throwing our weight around for 50 years……

To celebrate this anniversary, we announce our new Dance Innovation Fund to support technology, equipment, and facilities keeping Ohio State Dance at the forefront of innovation in the field of contemporary dance.

This issue of InForm celebrates our last semester. The second Brazil Dance Tour Group spent an exhilarating two weeks performing, taking class with dance masters, and engaging in cultural exchange in Salvador and Lencois, Brazil. Our School Tour Group connected with children in eleven Columbus schools. We strengthened our collaborations with community partner Suzan Bradford Kounta and the Thiosssane West African Dance Institute. And we give a big shout-out to our remarkable Production Manager Carrie Cox.

Enjoy.  And see you in November,

Susan Hadley's signature.
