A dance choreographed by Jill Brammer, an M.F.A. in Dance candidate, was selected for performance in the gala concert of the Mid Atlantic Regional American College Dance Festival on Saturday, March 4. The dance was chosen from a pool of 40 dances adjudicated at the festival, which was held at James Madison University.

The piece, titled “With These Words that Came from the Water,” was danced by students Rita Donahue, Amber Duke, Elizabeth Reynolds, Ellen Rippon, and Ginger Wagg. The adjudicators described the dance as “full, complex, rich, and very well done,” “beautiful and performed with loving skill,” and “compositionally strong.”

The piece will be performed in the Concert Hall as a featured work, along with Alwin Nikolais’ “Tensile Involvement,” Kraig Patterson’s “Subterraneans,” and a premiere by Susan Shields, in the George Mason University Dance Company Spring Concert, April 14 and 15.
