I would like to thank Professor Shawn Womack for sharing her performance of “Over Time: Three Decades of Dance” with the Grinnell community on Jan 22. It was empowering to see strong, confident, wise women dancers working in such a cohesive way. The bond between the four dancers who had spent decades creating dances and performing together was so obvious on stage that it became another element of the performance and choreography.
My favorite dance was “Pageant”; I loved the specificity of movement at the beginning, the humor amid the well-crafted content and the implied meanings of every look and gesture.
I know the choreographer, dancers, and tech crew put a lot of work into the performance and I’m only sad we couldn’t host you for longer and share your performance with more Central Iowans.
Thank you so much for coming to Grinnell and sharing your high-quality dance with us!
