As part of the commemorations of U-M’s bicentennial year, Glancing Back, Dancing Forward celebrates the long presence of dance on campus through a fast-paced collage of dance works old and new. Faculty choreographers Melissa Beck, Amy Chavasse, Bill DeYoung, Peter Sparling, Sandra Torijano, and Robin Wilson contribute short pieces that acknowledge Michigan’s distinctive dance tradition of experimentation and growth. In addition to performances on stage, Dance Department chair Jessica Fogel curates a lobby installation chronicling the history of dance at the University.
