Spring Dance Capstone Concert

Unearthed: A Revealing Collection of Movement Stories

Unearthed is a dance concert featuring the choreographic creations of Adrienne Frisbee,
Elise Gusinde-Duffy, Abbey Mann, Binyamin Salzano, and Molly Strader. This concert includes
an eclectic blend of contemporary and ballet styles. Each work showcases personal stories of
heartbreak, trauma, and experiences of the artist, while ultimately pointing toward the light of
hope. The Senior Dance Capstone Concert is the culmination of many years of rigorous work in
the Dance Major Program. Each choreographer has poured their heart and soul into works that
represent deep aspects of their own identity.
