Colorado State University students Shannon Gerney, Emily Kaiser, and Julianna Williams prepare to bookend their time training with the dance department. Before they empty out their lockers for good, they will first take their combined 50 years of dance experience and construct a show from the ground up.
Each dancer is required to choreograph and perform a four to seven-minute solo, choreograph an eight to twelve-minute group piece, and perform in each other’s group pieces. Additionally, they are required to select costumes, music, and a theme for the show. The show titled “Places Between,” explores the concept of being in a time of transition and change. It is about ending one phase and preparing to start another.
“As a graduating senior, I’m very much in an in between place,” Gerney said. “I’m still a student, but at the same time I need to look towards the future and what’s next.”
