GCU Dancers Shine at American Dance College Festival
March 16, 2014 — Georgian Court University dance majors recently performed Regions of Light, an original work by GCU Artist-in-Residence Caitlin Quinn Pittenger, during the American College Dance Festival northeast regional conference at The College of Brockport.
During the March 14-16 event, GCU students competed against and took classes with dancers from Rutgers’ Mason Gross School of the Arts, Temple University, Philadelphia’s University of the Arts, Fairleigh Dickinson University and more than 30 other schools.
“This is the one place where the best college dance programs come together each year,” said Silvana Cardell, director of the Georgian Court University dance program. “It is an incredible honor for our dancers to showcase not only their own talent, but also the choreography of Caitlin Quinn Pittenger. This is one of many examples where GCU dance faculty link academic instruction and studio preparation to real world experience and exposure.”
