Name: Madeleine Flapper
Dance style: Classical and Contemporary
What are you most looking forward to about the Appalachian Spring Project?
I am most looking forward to meeting and getting to know people who I share common interests with. I am also looking forwards to working with a live orchestra and pushing myself as a dancer and a performer.
What do you hope to get out of taking part in this performance project?
I hope to develop my skills in choreography, and further improve my performance and technique. I also hope to meet new people and make new friends.
How do you see that it will improve your dance?
I think that this performance project will help me to develop my creativity in choreography and performance. By working and collaborating with others to find meaning in the music and create something new, I will also be exposed to new and different dance styles and techniques. I will also be working with a choreographer whom I have never worked with before, so I will be exposed to unfamiliar choreography, and will have to learn to work outside my comfort zone.
How valuable is this experience for you as a young artist?
I think this experience is extremely valuable as a young dancer and performer, as it will introduce me to the dance and choreography industry. By working with other dancers who I have not danced with in the past, I hope to be more inspired and gain ideas for my own future performances.
See Madeleine bring to life a new choreography in our Appalachian Spring Project Concert on Thu 18 Apr, 7pm at Elder Hall. Buy your tickets here.
