The accent on student participation continued beyond the dances themselves. Dancers also designed the poster and program, gathered public relations information, worked on costumes, and assisted with hanging lights and backstage arrangements. “I want them to be involved in the various aspects of production,” Butcher explained, “so they can get an idea of all the preparations that go into creating a concert. It’s important that they understand what it takes.”

The dancers also named the evening: Momentum. “They looked for a title that was powerful and dynamic, and would embrace the variety of dances,” Butcher said. “I think they found a good one.”

Momentum: gathering impetus of forward movement, in the moment.
