College is often the last time dancers are able to dance in an organized group setting. For graduating seniors in Blank Canvas Dance Company, their annual Spring Showcase is the finale to a lifelong passion.
“There aren't really opportunities for people in their 20s who have danced forever to keep dancing,” said Megan Anderson, a senior biomedical and health science engineering major. She co-choreographed a hip-hop dance to Logic’s “1-800-273-8255” with sophomore Isabelle Taylor, and is performing in five other dances.
Blank Canvas will be holding the showcase at Memorial Hall on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. There will be 26 performances in a variety of styles, from tap to hip-hop to musical theater.
Each dance in the showcase is choreographed by members of Blank Canvas. Dance ability ranges from those who are taking their first classes to those who have been dancing since they could walk.
“Being a part of Blank Canvas has been one of the greatest things I have done at my time at Carolina, and as a senior, I look back upon Blank Canvas with great fondness,” Blank Canvas President Kelly Davis said in a Facebook message. “Getting the opportunity to serve the company that gave me so much has truly been a privilege, and I can't wait to share all the hard work that all of our dancers have put in over the last semester with the Carolina community on Saturday.”
