U-M Dance Company kicks at Kennedy

Students from the School of Music's University Dance Company—including Roche Janken, left, with Brian McSween of the Joffrey Ballet Company—perform June 2 at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. They performed Alonzo King's "Shostakovic String Quartet," a work developed on campus with guest artist King for the "Dances for St. Petersburg"—the Department of Dance's winter 2004 concert. A grant from Dance America and the National Endowment for the Arts funded King's residency work with dance students. U-M was among eight university dance groups invited to perform at the Kennedy Center that week. School of Music Dean Karen Wolff and Department of Dance Chair Bill DeYoung attended the performance, and Wolff hosted a reception afterward for alumni, friends and parents of the dance students.
