Celebration of Movement'

November 20, 1997|By Judith Green

Just back from the Quinzena da Danca de Almada in Portugal, the dancers of Surge are still rarin' to dance.

They are the centerpiece of "A Celebration of Movement," a benefit for the dance programs at the Carver Center for Arts and Technology, to be held Sunday at Goucher College.

The program features not only Surge, the center's resident professional modern-dance company, but also Dance Prime (advanced) students from the magnet school, center alumni and young dancers from the after-school arts program.

The program features Surge in "Seinn O" (Gaelic for "Sing out") by Amanda Thom Woodson and "Ripped" by artistic director Ken Skrzesz.

For the alumni dancers, Stacey Lefebvre has choreographed a group work called "Anonymous," and for the advanced students of Dance Prime, Elizabeth Lowe Ahearn has made a ballet, "Sonata in B."

The program will end with a work for 60 dancers -- all of the modern-dance classes at Carver, including the after-school arts program -- called "Theme and Variations," choreographed by the dance faculty in collaboration.

The benefit includes a silent auction at 2 p.m. and the performance at 3 p.m. at Kraushaar Auditorium, Goucher College, 1021 Dulaney Valley Road, Towson. Tickets are $20. Call 410-887-2845.
