Production Highlights

AKRON, OH—The University of Akron Dance Program will present Choreographers’ Workshop December 8-9 at 7:30 p.m. at Daum Theatre. The theatre is in The University of Akron’s Kolbe Hall, 328 Buchtel Commons.


Choreographers’ Workshop is an annual live dance performance in which The University of Akron dance students create and perform original works. This diverse performance showcases choreographic works of UA dancers Dominique Patton, Jamie Vadnal, Kayla Chilcote, Teresa Catterlin, and Stephanie Anderson. Each dance will have distinct characteristics, some based on real-world news stories, the brain, habits, and sorrow.


Hoping to raise awareness for those in emotionally abusive relationships, Dominique Patton has choreographed news stories lately about physical and emotional abuse. Stephanie Anderson has choreographed her first piece for the stage about mourning the loss of a loved one and hoping to meet them again. “Stop the Traffick,” choreographed by Kayla Chilcote, is a hard-hitting contemporary dance that will make you think about the subject of human sex trafficking like you never have before.


Inspired by individual characteristics of the brain, Jamie Vadnal has choreographed a dance called “Lateralization’s” on how each hemisphere intertwines. “Creatures of Habit,” choreographed by Teresa Catterlin, will be presented in three pieces about creatures of habit.
