DANCE | Summer Movement Institute 

Don't be surprised if you see a group of teens dancing around the Memorial Art Gallery (500 University Avenue) this week. The students of Garth Fagan Dance's Summer Movement Institute will perform a free, public show on Thursday, July 27. Drawing inspiration from the gallery's outdoor sculptures, the performance will be directed by Natalie Rogers-Cropper and Mary-Lee Miller. The students of the Summer Movement Institute were part of a three-week intensive dance program, where they learned about repertory, technique, and composition. Classes also included lectures, video talks, music appreciation, and nutrition, all taught by Garth Fagan Dance company members.

This MAG event, along with a final performance at the Garth Fagan Dance School (50 Chestnut Street) on Saturday, July 29, gives the students an opportunity to showcase what they've learned this summer. Thursday's performance takes place 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday's concert is 2 p.m. to 3:15 p.m. For more information, visit garthfagandance.org.
