Fall Faculty Dance Concert and Benefit a Beautiful and Successful First-Time Collaboration
Hofstra University, Hempstead, NY ... One of the most exciting collaborations on campus during the Fall 2012 semester was the Faculty Dance Concert performed by students from both the Hofstra Dance Program and the Music Department. The concert included a timeline of musical compositions stretching from the Baroque to the 21st century. Dance pieces ranged from the delicate beauty of a formal minuet to the thrilling athletic power of contemporary dance.
It is very rare for college and university dance programs to be accompanied by live music. This collaboration between the dance program and the Department of Music was the largest of its kind ever at Hofstra, in terms of faculty support, guest artist talent and student participation.
Performances took November 29 through December 2, 2012. The Saturday night performance was a benefit for Island Harvest, the largest hunger relief organization on Long Island. Proceeds were designated to help families impacted by Hurricane Sandy and the following week’s Nor’easter.
Hofstra University is a dynamic private institution of higher education where more than 11,000 full and part-time students choose from undergraduate and graduate offerings in liberal arts and sciences, business, engineering, applied science, communication, education, health sciences and human services, honors studies, the Maurice A. Deane School of Law and the Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine.
