"swan song" dancers

We are excited to announce that our own dance students have advanced to the 2023 ACDA National Festival Selections to perform in the Festival Gala Concerts! Watch an excerpt of their dance here!

Representing the North-Central Region is the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, who will perform “Swan Song,” by Artist Elayna Waxse, in collaboration with the dancers.

“The ensemble of this work thoughtfully cares for and guides one another on a deeply personal journey through transition, thoughtful gesture, and nuance. Sweeping phrase work and momentum carry students through intricate and tender relationships.”

The concert is taking place May 26-28 in Long Beach, CA at the Carpenter Performing Arts Center.
