The weekend of Feb. 9-12, the Samford Dance Company will perform their annual dance concert at Harrison Theatre.
This year’s show is called “Masterpieces.” The show is a unique experience, as each dancer plays a different role in portraying a story, reflecting different artists’ still work by choreographing a live movement piece and thereby discovering the image in a new way.
Samford Dance Company member Reese Wrather is an elementary education major with a minor in dance. Wrather believes the contrast of calm and chaotic moments in the show creates an atmosphere that will excite the audience.
“’Masterpiece’ is taking something that is really beautiful and showing it in a different light, connecting it to still images people may be familiar with,” said Wrather. “Basically, taking a piece of artwork and putting it on a dancer so it comes to life.”
Samford Dance Company member Mikayla Hansen is a Christian ministry major with a double minor in language and dance. Hansen exemplifies the light and excitement the dance company feels as they ready to display their weeks of hard work.
Hansen described the show as “A work of art that has many different forms, this performance makes still art come to life with live physical movement.”
