The stage is set for the final 2021 dance concert of University seniors with the department of dance.

The final concert for the class of 2021 is set to hit the stage in two parts on Friday, April 30, and Saturday, May 1. Both parts will take place on Zoom at 7:30 p.m. Access to audience members opens at 7:15 p.m.

The concert, titled The _____ Sense, will feature a series of dance films and performance documentations. It aims to explore our understanding of the world that we live in and how it relates to the digital world so many have become accustomed to over the past year.

Individual topics range from human cognition, emotion and sensation to the visual, non-verbal language of the human body.

The concert will be the final thesis for 10 senior dance students who are set to graduate at the conclusion of this semester.
