Student dancers took the stage for the Spring Back dance showcase yesterday evening, filling Warner Main Space with the eclectic energy that many have come to look forward
to from the Dance department’s annual event. Dance Professor Alysia Ramos directed this year’s performance, which featured fan-favorite aerial movements along with other
impressive stunts.

The spring semester sister showcase to Fall Forward, Spring Back largely highlights choreography by students in the Dance department. This semester’s show features performances
and choreography by Ramos, College first-year Georgie Johnson, College juniors Michal Schorsch, Gabrielle “Teddy” Ment, Niya Smith-Wilson, Gloria Lewis, Marquis
Junior, Tian Yoon Teh, College seniors Karsten Jurkiewicz, Kat Geber, Maddie Klein, Visiting Professor of Dance Holly Handman-Lopez and guest artist Sydnie Mosley, an artistactivist
whose work often centers the experience of Black women.

Performances are scheduled for today and Saturday in Warner Main Space at 8 p.m. Tickets are available for $5 at the Central Ticket Office.
