Valencia College’s Choreographers’ Showcase is taking a unique approach to their 22nd annual event this year, with the majority of the show pre-recorded for the first time in the event’s history. Premiering on Friday, Nov. 13 and running through Saturday, Nov. 14, the event is designed to showcase student choreography and serve as a creative outlet for their work.
Recorded in October, Valencia’s dance students teamed up with professor Howard Tate’s digital media students to record and edit the showcase in the Performing Arts Center. The safety of students, both performing and recording throughout the production, has been the top priority for Valencia College faculty and staff.
“Our students socially distanced while performing on stage in the Performing Arts Center and were recorded on cameras set up in adherence to safety protocols.” explained Kris Stevens, part-time faculty, dance, and dance performance production coordinator. “Our Performing Arts Center staff handled the camera operation of the show so that digital media students could complete their work in a virtual environment, lessening physical contact on campus.”
A link to the performance will be available 30 minutes prior to the showtime on the Valencia Arts webpage. Admission is free, but donations to the Valencia College Department of Dance will be accepted on the School of Arts and Entertainment Performance Fund webpage.
