Dance event to connect with local studios

This Saturday, Nov. 5 at 2 p.m. “Fresh Space” will be taking place in Wagner Bundgaard Studio One in St. Olaf’s very own Dittmann Center. “Fresh Space” provides an opportunity for current St. Olaf students, dance faculty and community members from the Northfield area to come together to share in-progress as well as finished dances.

“Fresh Space” is a great opportunity for students on campus to see what is going on in dance, not only on campus, but also in the greater Northfield community.

This event incorporates college-aged students and will also feature performances with younger dance students from some of the various dance schools in town.

This year, there will be groups from campus, including Veselica – one of the two dance companies in the Dance Department – as well as a dance from the Africa Night performance. In addition, “Fresh Space” will have several current St. Olaf students showing work, showcasing their perspectives and talents.

Dance students from Division Street Dance, Pinnacle Performing Arts and Northfield Dance Academy will also be participating in “Fresh Space.” These are some of the dance schools around the Northfield area, and they have been practicing for their chance to show off their skills Saturday on St. Olaf’s campus.

The concert, primarily organized by Heather Klopchin, is free and all are welcome to attend the event. If you are looking for something to do on Saturday, or if you want to be impressed by quality performances of art, then you should most definitely consider attending “Fresh Space” to enjoy a variety of entertaining dance performances, highlighting various cultures and ages.

It is sure to be a riveting experience for all ages to attend. “Fresh Space” is a unique display of art that can only be seen once this year.
