RIC Dance Company (above and below).
The RIC Dance Company’s 51st annual Spring Concert Series from Feb. 26-28 will showcase an eclectic blend of styles featuring award-winning performances from international, national and local performers and choreographers.

The concert will include dance works by body percussionist Keith Terry, modern dancer and choreographer Lisa Race, tap dancer Josh Hilberman, modern dancer Jane Comfort, contemporary ballet choreographer Colleen Cavanuagh and RIC faculty member and modern dance choreographer Katie McNamara.

Join the RIC Dance Company on March 25 and 26, for the Faculty Alumni Concert, an annual event highlighting work choreographed by RIC faculty members, including assistant professor Olase Freeman, who will explore the aesthetics of hip-hop, as well as the realities of becoming a parent and his continued investigation of spirals, breath and flow.

The Faculty Alumni concert will also feature the work of RIC adjunct faculty members Michael Bolger of Providence Theater Ballet, Eva Marie Pacheco of Providence Ballet Dance Theatre, Katie McNamara of Bald Soul Dance Company and Kathy Smith, a modern dance instructor at Roger Williams University.

RIC dance students take the stage on May 6 and 7 to present their work after a year of honing their craft as young choreographers through challenging classes and guest residencies. The Student Choreography Showcase will put the spotlight on pieces that are the result of coursework and independent projects completed throughout the academic year.

This exciting event provides advanced students with an ideal venue for their work and is sure to provide an evening of great entertainment for the audience.
