Salve student dancers to perform in sunken garden outside Wakehurst

In the first of its kind for Salve Regina’s dance program, Extensions Dance Company will take its performances outside when “In the Garden” is presented today and Friday on campus grounds. The site-specific pieces have been choreographed by Salve senior Amanda Morton and will be performed by 14 dancers in the sunken garden between Wakehurst and McKillop Library. Two performances will be given on both Wednesday, Sept. 24 and Friday, Sept. 26 at 4 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.

Morton began the project last spring during “Choreography,” a course required for the minor in dance. She drew inspiration from the garden itself. She envisioned a group of dancers moving throughout the space in a majestic manner, personifying statues of a garden.
