Dance at Illinois Selected for the National College Dance Festival

Our esteemed adjudicators (Charles O. Anderson, Head of Dance, University of Texas/Austin, Siobhan Burke, New York Times and Dance Magazine critic, and Leah Cox, Dean of the American Dance Festival) said about this piece:

"where we're going unapologetically celebrates black women's power, beauty, and strength. In the spirit of black female artists such as Urban Bush Women and Camille A. Brown, this work creates an uninhibited space that draws from Africanist aesthetics from the traditional to the contemporary." 

We are so proud of Krystal and her cast—this is an amazing accomplishment!

A huge congratulations to undergraduate student Krystal Collins (BFA '18) and her cast—Kadesha Ellison, Tyjah Kelly, Tia Pruitt, Star Milam, and Faith Stanton. Collins's work where we're going was one of two selected from 44 pieces at the Central Region Conference to be performed at the National College Dance Festival at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., June 6–9, 2018.
