Lander Dancers Schedule Free Public Performance

"Celebrating Diversity in Creativity” is the theme of a Lander University Dance Company recital scheduled for Monday and Tuesday, Dec. 3-4, in the university’s Josephine B. Abney Cultural Center Auditorium. The program, which begins at 8 p.m., is open to the public and admission is free.

Dr. Hannah Park, assistant professor of dance and director of the Dance Company, said the performance will feature a cast of 30 students, most of whom majoring in other subjects but who have extensive dance training.

The recital, featuring six segments, is student-directed. Park said it is modern dance-based and focuses on creative expression, aesthetics, variety in movement and self-expression. She added, “The students have a lot of experience and are committed to and passionate about dance.”

Park, a native of South Korea, joined the Lander faculty in September. She has a doctorate in dance education and a graduate certificate in women’s studies from Temple University, and a master’s in dance performance and choreography from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. In addition to her academic and teaching credentials, she has performed on stage with several dance companies.

Park enjoys working with students, teaching and dance, and her faculty position at Lander allows her to combine all three. Of her experience with the Dance Company students she said, “I am touched by their commitment, which illustrates the power of dance as a great creative and emotional outlet.”
