Each spring, RDT’s MoCo performs a showcase of original modern choreography. The event promotes the artistry of Modern dance, highlights the work of our Modern Company, and promotes Company membership. It is a collection of vibrant works from Modern Company Director Gia Mongell Binner, Assistant Director Jeffery Duffy, fellow studio choreographers, guest choreographers and MoCo company dancers.
In 2023, the show entitled Evolution of…. Dance in America will include a captivating collection of pieces that will guide the audience through a broad historical timeline of modern dance in our society today. As we move forward in reinventing the “modern” dance wheel, it does our community a disservice if we do not understand where the movement originates. How can we know where we are going if we don’t know where we came from? Dancers ranging in age from 10-18 perform in large group numbers, small group ensembles, and solo choreographies that take us on a quick journey from BCE Africa to modern day Broadway.
