The Ohio University Division of Dance in the School of Dance, Film and Theatre will present its annual Fall Senior Dance Concert, the culminating project for BFA dance majors, Nov. 13-15 in Putnam Hall’s Shirley Wimmer Dance Theatre.

This fall, six seniors will employ their unique perspectives in newly created choreographic works to be presented at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. each evening.

7, a self-choreographed solo piece by Leah Crosby, investigates how childhood frustrations of being thought “cutely inadequate” by society never leave the female body, and how this anger manifests itself in strange furies and actions.

Bethany Logan’s Pani draws from her experiences in a third-world country exploring the dynamics between a community of strangers and how a drop of water can bring them together.

Intolerable Uncertainty, choreographed and performed by Annie Scott with an original score by Michael Dailey, explores the physical aspect of anxiety. Scott’s unique, percussive movement assists in Scott’s endeavor and exploration of the disorder and seeks to understand anxiety’s effects on the human body.

When the soul needs healing, movement is the answer. Rebecca Sebo’s Inner Outside utilizes the body’s inner groove and release into the world. A beach-like soundscape by Shlohmo provides an ambient and meditative soundscape.

Kaitlin Flynn’s large group work, Unveiling Eleven, is a multi-layered look into an individual’s significance within a whole. Prompted by dancers identifying themselves as numbers, the piece explores interpersonal relationships and the familiar language necessitating their alliance in a functionalist understanding and intrinsic need for each other.

Curtis Johnson’s solo piece, Fallen Shy of Crimson, explores the humors of the body. These four fluids influence the body’s journey of self-exploration. Accompanied by Jake Schlaerth’s original score, Johnson’s piece explores the internal shifts of each temperament.

Tickets are $8 for general admission and free to Ohio University students with a valid OU ID. Visit for more information.
