"Paradigm Shift" charity dance performance to honor women's history


On March 1, 2018 at 7:30 p.m., “Paradigm Shift: An Evening of Women’s Work” will play at Albig Studio Theatre in Peters Hall, room B112. The one night only performance features the creative works of emerging female choreographers from Radford University’s Department of Dance. The annual event first debuted in 2008 featuring the works of faculty and students. In the years since, it has shifted focus toward student choreographers and dancers.

The show is presented by Harmony In Motion, a student dance group affiliated with the Department of Dance. The performance is free, however each year donations are encouraged to support charitable organizations. This year Harmony In Motion will be donating all funds raised from the performance to the Community Adolescent Mentoring Program (CAMP), a local charity that works with youth in the Radford area.

“The show is a tribute to women artists, specifically choreographers,” said Tori Unterberger, student liaison to Harmony In Motion. “Paradigm Shift” honors Women’s History Month by featuring all female choreographers expressing their perspectives through movement. Thursday’s performance will feature works from student choreographers Morgan Evans, India Edmonds, Celinna Haber, Brigitte Manga, Kelly Noah, Fiona Scruggs, Denise Urban, and Sebrena Williamson.

The show will feature a wide variety of styles from contemporary to jazz-funk and is a great opportunity to kick off Women’s History Month by experiencing original creative works by female dance students at Radford University.
