GPS Hosts Terpsichord Thanksgiving Dance Program

Tuesday, November 26, 2013

Behind the Glass is the theme of this year’s GPS Terpsichord Thanksgiving dance program, scheduled for Tuesday at 11:30 a.m. in the school’s Frierson Theatre.  The annual mini-concert has a focus on the influences or moments in one’s life. Members of the contemporary dance company have choreographed pieces that capture commercialism, narcissism, knowledge acquisition, and lack of time.

One of their most popular dance performances, the program is a prelude to the season of thanks and draws a crowd of Terpsichord alumnae, family, and friends. The first program of student choreography, Originals, is presented in the fall. The spring concert is scheduled for March 14-15. 

This year’s company of dancers includes president Mary Chandler Gwin, and co-vice presidents Rachel Hadden and Shannon Han, who will perform a piece together; seniors Emma Berry, Lexie Brzezienski, Kristen Carter, Margaret Clark, Danielle Richardson, Leah Russell, and Bonnie St. Charles; juniors Sarah Jane Green Lexie King, Nia Sanders, Mary Lillian Tessman, and Meg Winchester; and sophomores Emma Kirkpatrick, Madison McClendon, Abigail Owsley, Tess Shanahan, Maggie Swafford, and Charlotte Whitfield. Terpsichord is directed by GPS Fine Arts Chair Cathie Ault Kasch ’72, assisted by Laurel Moore Zahrobsky ’90.
