Rowley Brings First Dance Performance to HCC Digital Auditorium

Roxann Rowley, adjunct instructor in the Department of Theatre and Dance at UMW, will bring the first full-length dance performance to the Hurley Convergence Center’s Digital Auditorium next month, rounding out the venue’s arts offerings.

The show, en Route!, is a touring dance project that facilitates performances for local artists. Rowley’s company, Next Reflex Dance Collective, collaborates with local theaters and artists to produce a performance that offers accessible work targeting a new-to-dance audience. For this performance, Next Reflex has partnered with Light Switch Dance Theatre, Matrix Dance Company, Semilla Cultural, J.Dance Kollective, and Mary Washington’s own Dance Company.

Rowley will also offer a Modern Dance Technique Workshop at 10am the day of the performance, free to the UMW Community.

This event follows a number of successful arts performances in the Digital Auditorium, including Boil the Frog Slowly and Stigma, both by the Rude Mechanicals Theatre Group, the Mark Snyder Multimedia Show, featuring UMW Music faculty Mark Snyder’s solo compositions, and a student production of The Vagina Monologues last spring.
