Her piece, titled Brief thoughts about life right now, doesn't stray too far from its title in terms of theme. "I have incorporated a series of posters throughout the dance with messages that succinctly describe all the moments of joy, excitement, fear, concern, and utter confusion that I have experienced in the past couple of months as I prepare to enter a new chapter of my life."
Bree's work will be performed by students from the Western Michigan University Department of Dance.
"The group dancing with me are my colleagues from WMU that want to perform during the summertime. It works out because I want to practice creating, so we submit to all of the festivals we can and then go on a pseudo-tour of Michigan."
You might recognize Bree from the 2014 BDF Opening Night Concert and festival.... she was a featured performer in the show and a part of our internship team! Bree's movement style is sure to inspire all of our students!
