World Dance Celebration returns to New World School of the Arts to offer dance forms from around the globe. Along with dancers from the University of Florida, the concert features more than fifty-five college and high school dancers performing to the beat of live drums and recorded music and features choreographic works from contemporary world modern dance to traditional African dance.
NWSA will offer a captivating program that includes MacArthur Award-winning choreographer Kyle Abraham’s jazz and hip-hop-influenced work, Lily; Jose Limon’s final work, completed after his death by founding Dean of Dance Daniel Lewis, The Waldstein Sonata, set to the stirring Beethoven Sonata; Lara Murphy’s evocative contemporary ballet, Cortical Voyage; and Darshan Singh Bhuller’s powerful work The Virgin Queen, which employs cutting edge graphic design to transport the audience to Elizabethan England.
The University of Florida will round off the program with powerful African dance works under the direction of Professor Mohamed DaCosta, Lecturer in African Performing Arts in the School of Theatre and Dance and the Center for African Studies, with lively traditional drumming accompaniment.
