KENOSHA, Wis. – With artistic direction by Kristina Saldarelli, “Away from the Mirror” will feature Carthage College dance students on the weekend of April 7 and 8.
Show times are 7:30 p.m. April 7 and 3 p.m. April 8 in the Studio Theatre, located in the David A. Straz Jr. Center for the Natural and Social Sciences at the north end of the Carthage campus, 2001 Alford Park Drive.
“Away from the Mirror” features works by student choreographers, including Stephanie Van Wieringen, Noelle Jay, and Eunice Mwonya. Dance styles will include jazz, lyrical, contemporary, tap, and solo compositions.
Saldarelli, an adjunct faculty member at Carthage, provides guidance for these emerging artists. A working member of the Chicago arts community for the past decade, she has been involved in organizations such as Virtuoso Performing Arts and the Jump Rhythm Jazz Project.
Carthage offers a minor in dance, and these student choreographers have created engaging works using the technical and artistic skills they have developed in the classroom. In addition, this annual concert provides a platform for each dancer to develop a unique style in an intimate performance space.
