Department of Dance alum Jessie Ryan returns to Adelphi to create Encounters that will have its world premiere as part of Dance Adelphi.

From Jessie regarding the inspiration for this new piece: Encounters. If we distill our lives into the most potent moments, the extract remains as our interactions with one another. First impressions, a-ha moments of relational growth. We don’t get to choose, we don’t decide. We paint our lovers as romantic superlatives, but what happens when their human reality becomes known to us? We meet our most real selves in the midst of our connections.

The program will also feature a mix of ballet and modern dance choreographed by our talented faculty.
