There was a pretty large crowd in the MAC for Thursday night’s dress rehearsal of the McCallum Youth Dance Company’s fall concert “TRADITIONS, innovating.” The dance company performed the entire concert of student-choreographed and faculty-choreographed pieces during the dress rehearsal. The eclectic collection of solo and ensemble pieces concludes with wordless narrative “Jus de Grenade,” choreographed by Rachael Murray. “Getting to play Mother Earth coming from the underground is unreal, and I never thought I would get to play a graceful yet sinister character,” senior Keanna Hayes said. “This piece is very beautiful, and it has different stories embedded into one.” To see the whole story unfold on stage and also the wide variety of pieces that precede it, you’ll have to check out the show at 7 p.m. Saturday or at 2 p.m. Sunday in the MAC. But if you can’t wait until then, this gallery of images from two intrepid MacJournalism photographers will have to do. Photos by Annabel and Dave Winter.
