Anchorage Museum | Anchorage, AK

University of Alaska Anchorage’s Dance in Concert Retrospective 2023 is the final event for the UAA Dance Department. Watch performances from the atrium and in other galleries located museum-wide on Friday, April 7. Produced by the UAA department of theatre and dance, the event will present new choreographies and repertory work; one livestream dance event; and the premiere of five dance films. Featured will be current dance students, former dance program alumni and guest artists - both dancers and musicians - returning to Alaska to honor the dance program for its vital presence in Anchorage for more than 48 years.
Also featured will be community dancers from Momentum Dance Collective and Sunlight Collaboration, and the UAA Indigenous Performing Arts Class under the direction of Professor Maria Williams. The evening will kick off at 6:15 p.m. for an hour and 15-minute program of dance. The program will reboot and repeat from the beginning at 7:35 p.m. A 20-minute set of live jazz music in the atrium will anchor each hour and fifteen performance, with returning guest artist Katherine Kramer, alumna Katya Kuznetsova, Momentum Artistic Director Becky Kendall, UAA Professor Jill Flanders Crosby, and guest artist musicians Ray Booker and Stephanie Haskins on bass and piano respectively.
Come enjoy an exciting event that brings together the collaborative skills of UAA faculty, students and alumni, community arts-makers and nationally known guest artists to celebrate the best of UAA dance before it goes away for good. Free.
