WMU DANCERS SELECTED FOR AMERICAN COLLEGE DANCE ASSOCIATION'S NATIONAL FESTIVAL  

Associate Professor Carolyn Pavlik’s “The illusion has been just a dream…” performed by thirteen WMU dance majors was selected during adjudication of the American College Dance Association’s East-Central Regional Conference to be featured in the festival’s gala concert.  Subsequently, Pavlik’s work has been chosen to represent the region at this year’s national festival. It will be performed at the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. this June.  The adjudicators admired the “fresh and innovative” character development and compositional craft.  They remarked that the dance displayed an “excellent, powerful, and fluid large ensemble.” They described the work as an “engrossing and chilling work” which examines a disturbing historical subject and emphasizes the larger effect on the community, “making the historical, relevant and timely.” (Photography: John Lacko)
