The Movement of Light
Junior Dance major Jessica Doughty recently choreographed and performed an interpretive dance beneath the interactive lighting display in Zook Hall.
The dance, entitled Movement of Light, was the final exam for the course Choreography II. Students were required to choose a location on campus that inspires them and perform a 3-5 minute piece.
Doughty has studied dance since the age of 3. Her goal is to receive the MFA in Dance or Dance Therapy and teach in public schools and/or children's hospitals to reach those who might not otherwise have the means to attend dance classes.
