Members of the Westover community will be featured in the Kiva Dance Collective’s 14th Annual Concerts on Saturday, February 23rd, at 7:30 pm and Sunday, February 24th, at 2:00 pm in Westover’s Louise B. Dillingham Performing Arts Center Theater.
Students from Westover’s Dance Program who will perform at the concerts include Catie Bates ’13, Stephanie Sorosiak ’13, Paige Calabrese ’14, Gretchen Kinkel ’14, Evelyn Summermatter ’14, Leigh Kulpa ’15, Samy Misasi ’15, and Caroline Richardson ’16. They will perform “Alegria,” a Westover repertory piece from 2005 choreographed by Dance Program Director Patti Buchanan, who is also a member of the Kiva Dance Collective.
Staff member and Westover dance faculty member Meghan Buchanan and her sister, Mackenzie Buchanan ’06, will be among the Kiva Collective performers.
An Isadora Duncan piece, entitled “Furies,” will add an historical element to the concert. This piece was choreographed in the early 1900s for the opera Orpheus and Eurydice and embodies spirits from the underworld, women who where wronged somehow in life. This piece was set by Westover dance faculty member Susan McLain, and includes Gina Ferrara-Bates P’10, ’13.
The suggested donation for the concert is $15 for adults and $12 for seniors and children. Westover students will be admitted for free. Parking and entrance to the Performing Arts Center are on South Street. For more information about the concerts, please call Patti Buchanan at 203.577.4560.
