SRU DANCER  INVITED TO PERFORM AT WASHINGTON, D.C.’S KENNEDY CENTER IN JUNE

 SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. -- Francie Lloyd, a senior dance major at Slippery Rock University, was recently selected to perform her solo choreography for the American College Dance Festival at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., June 1-3.

 Lloyd’s work was one of the three chosen to move forward to the Kennedy Center at the American College Dance Festival held at Slippery Rock University March 10-14. Out of 40 works from 25 universities, her work was selected as one of 11 dances to appear on the regional gala concert.  From the 11, three were selected for the Kennedy Center.

Lloyd, of Monongahela, was also nominated for Dance Magazine’s Outstanding Student Choreographer Award, which entails a $1,000 cash prize.

    Lloyd’s solo “The Lady of the Lake” explores the dancer’s transformation into the Greek goddess of water with its provocative phrasework and submersion in a 60-gallon tank of water.

 “We are very proud of Francie and know that she deserves to be showcased at the Kennedy Center.  The responses to her dance and dancing ability are unparalleled,” said Nora Ambrosio, dance department chair.

    After May graduation, Lloyd plans to pursue a career in performance and choreography in New York City.
