SRU dance major's work heads to Kennedy Center

Todd Englander, a Slippery Rock University dance and elementary education major from Wantagh, N.Y., has had his choreography unanimously selected to represent the region and SRU at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., May 27-28 as part of the American College Dance organization's national conference.

            The work is titled "Knowledge-Lessons = Tests?"

            Englander's choreography was selected for presentation at the conference after being selected as one of 14 dances included at a Gala Conference at the American College Dance Festival at Ohio University earlier this semester.

            Festival adjudicators, all prominent members in the dance field, cited Englander's highly physical and athletic performance that included an original dance video to which he interacts throughout the performance.

            Two other student-choreographed dances will be presented at the Kennedy Center conference.
