Dance exists beyond the stage. Students, faculty and staff in Arizona State University's School of Film, Dance and Theatre have always explored how movement and dance performances can happen in nontraditional settings, from the steps leading to an art museum to the film screen. And now they are testing their creativity even more to find ways to inspire through movement and dance when they cannot dance together and cannot perform to an audience in those spaces with them.  

In an unwavering effort to continue to bring the arts to the community, a combination of students and faculty in the School of Film, Dance and Theatre will come together to present their first-ever virtual SpringDanceFest at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 25.

This virtual dance concert will be an evening of dance works highlighting the 2019–20 season. It will include recorded videos of rehearsals and performances and some time set aside for audience interaction afterward. The show will feature seven pieces created and performed by ASU graduate and undergraduate students, plus screenings and previews of two exciting dances choreographed by guest artists Liliana Gomez and Nicole Klaymoon.  

This open-to-the-public event is an opportunity to celebrate the hard work of ASU artists and guests in a new way and showcases the brilliant adaptability of these individuals.
