Garth Fagan Dance Establishes Relationship with the University of North Carolina at Greensboro

Garth Fagan Dance (GFD) will be performing at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro’s Auditorium on April 5 at 8pm. The reputation of Rochester-based GFD’s contemporary choreography came to the attention of the Director of UNCG’s School of Dance who engaged the company not only to perform, but also to lecture and demonstrate the Fagan Technique.

Garth Fagan, along with GFD’s new President Natalie Rogers Cropper, and Artistic Director PJ Pennewell, have curated a suite of dances to be performed by the Rochester-based company. The program is sponsored by UNCG and the Arts Council of Greater Greensboro.

Alexandra Joye Warren, founding artistic director of JOYEMOVEMENT in Greensboro, said her choreography is inspired by Garth, and is excited to participate in the program--exemplifying just one indication of how Garth Fagan Dance influences the development of contemporary dance in the US. Ms. Rogers Cropper said, “We are advancing the legacy of Garth Fagan Dance, and look forward to additional performances around the country, as well as in our home base of Rocester, as our new leadership team expands our reach."
