This year’s Spring Dance Festival marks the first time Princeton students will perform the work of the distinguished 2010 Kennedy Center Honors Recipient, the internationally acclaimed director and choreographer Bill T. Jones.

This year’s Spring Dance Festival includes more than 50 students from a range of academic departments performing in new student work and four world premieres by guests and faculty choreographers. In addition, students will perform Easy for You to Say, from the repertory of Zvi Gotheiner, and Continuous Replay, a seminal postmodern work by Arnie Zane, restaged in 1982 with additional materials by acclaimed choreographer Bill T. Jones. The premieres by guest choreographers include Vault, a ballet on pointe by Graham Lustig, the director of the recently created LustigDanceTheatre, featuring live music performed by Princeton students under the direction of Michael Pratt, conductor of the Princeton University Orchestra; Narrowline, an experimental contemporary dance by the Israeli born choreographer Deganit Shemy; and Folding Articulation, a new piece by Jill Johnson, the former principal dancer with Frankfurt Ballet. Princeton faculty Rebecca Lazier will premiere Water that Burns, her recent collaboration with students that features a set design by Princeton alumni Jeremy Olson '07. In addition, five dances chosen from fall courses will be performed featuring the choreography of A.J. Brannum, Christina Campodonico, Daniel Cohen, Katy Dammers, Alta du Pont, Lisa Einstein, Emily Francis, Austin Giangeruso, Gretchen Hoffmann, Chloe Markewich, Maggie McNamara, Stefanie Siller, Sarah Simon, and Ariel Trilling.
