“This year’s Spring Dance Concert, Restoration, is a journey inward, the process of moving through hardships, reflection, and the intellectual, physical and spiritual ability for the body to be restored,” said Stephen Welsh, visiting assistant professor of dance, Eastern University. “Each year the students and faculty work hard to bring high quality and though-provoking pieces to the stage. We are proud of the pieces on display this year, and look forward to sharing the performances with the Eastern University campus and community.”
The concert includes a wide variety of performance types, with something for everyone, including a flowing ballet, an energetic African dance, a commentary on interactive Zombie games, and a portrayal of a futuristic society derailed by big government.
