LINES Ballet/BFA in Dance students present Fall Showcase

The annual fall showcase of Dominican’s LINES Ballet/BFA in Dance program, featuring 48 talented student dancers, was held November 15-16 at Angelico Concert Hall.

With literature as the event’s theme and source of inspiration, guest artist Robert Sher-Macherndl from Lemon Sponge Cake Ballet in Colorado worked with the juniors in Dominican’s BFA in Dance program while Dominican’s seniors worked with guest artist Uri Sands from TU Dance in Minneapolis.

The fall performances also included new works by faculty members Gregory Dawson and Carmen Rozestraten.

Dominican's LINES Ballet/BFA in Dance program, directed by Marina Hotchkiss, is the only joint BFA dance program in the nation led by a master choreographer (Alonzo King) and one of only two in the United States affiliated with a major ballet company.  It currently has 60 students from Alaska, Minnesota, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, Florida, Iowa, Wisconsin, Wyoming, Oklahoma, Oregon, Colorado, North Carolina, Illinois, Washington DC, Maryland and California.
