Winter Works performances include:

  • “Sonatina,” choreographed by faculty member Carol Cunningham-Sigman, evokes images of being transported into the past where society is infatuated with formal behaviors.
  • “SPECIMENS,” choreographed by faculty member Rebecca Bryant, employs movement, text and music to create a world of dueling identities inspired by World War II images of Rosie the Riveter and the Vargas Girls.
  • “No Walls,” choreographed by faculty member Sally Wallace, is based on her experience visiting Chaco Canyon, a national park in the Southwest, protecting the ancient ruins of the Anasasi culture.
  • “Tartan Medley,” choreographed by faculty member Holly Jaycox, explores breaking conventions of modern dance choreography.
  • “What Next?” choreographed by faculty member Mary Beth Van Dyke, presents aspects of the relationship between those who demonstrate a sense of empowerment and those who feel powerless or marginalized.
  • “Flurry,” choreographed by Amy Cadwallader, a senior studying mathematics education from Selma, Ind., is inspired by objects moving in the wind.
  • “Arterial,” choreographed by Amanda Dechow, a senior studying aviation who is from Gainesville, Fla., explores the rise and fall of an adrenaline rush.
  • “About Face,” choreographed by Janelle Dixon, a junior in Agricultural Communication and Agricultural Economics from Ladoga, Ind., was inspired by the masks we all wear in front of others, and how they influence our behavior.
