In Pursuit of Expression

On April 3, 22 Fordham students celebrated the power of dance artistry in the annual Ailey/Fordham BFA Dance Benefit Concert. For this year’s benefit, Fordham presented a five-part dance program at the French Institute Alliance Français which featured the choreography of Ray Mercer, Adam Barruch, Adrian Hurd, Christopher L. Huggins, and others.

Junior Joslin Vezeau, the recipient of the Denise Jefferson Memorial Scholarship, performed a solo dance to Mercer’s “All in Love Is Fair,” while group numbers were performed by the freshman, sophomore, junior and senior classes, respectively. Whether poised onstage or posed mid-air, students brought line, shape, and spirit to the language of movement, creating dramatic renderings of each choreographer’s vision.
