Spring Moves!

Directed by Margaret C. Marshall


@ The Molli & Arthur Wagner Dance Bldg, Studio III

April 30 - May 2

The Performance

Undergraduate dancers take over the choreography in this showcase of their highly original works. An annual favorite, this year's Spring Dance includes eclectic contemporary, unique physical theatre, rhythmical tap, and a special site-specific work inspired by natural sounds heard during habitual paths through the campus. Add to the mix a bed, a few backpacks, two phones and a surprise ending every night, and you have the formula for an outstanding production from a new generation of dancers and choreographers.


The Director

Margaret C. Marshall (MFA, UC Irvine), known for her investigative and witty eclectic choreography, excellence in teaching, and innovative leadership, is the Founder of the Dance Program at the University of California, San Diego and was the Head of Dance for a total of 28 years over a 34 year span from 1975 to 2009. She authored the dance major and minor degrees and was a moving spirit behind the creation of the beautiful Wagner Dance Building. Margaret served as the Artistic Director and choreographer of the San Diego Dance Institute and “City Moves” projects from 1994-2001. She has trained in all genres of dance, with Anthony Tudor, Eugene Loring, Bella Lewitsky, Lar Lubovitch, Joe Tramaine and many more. She has performed, choreographed, and/or directed across the U.S. and internationally (Australia, China). Ms. Marshall was selected National Dance Chair for the National Society of Arts and Letters from 1988-90, directing their National Ballet and Modern Dance Career Awards. She recently served in Sacramento, on the California Department of Education’s Visual and Performing Arts Curriculum Framework Criteria Committee, and in Oakland for the UC Office of the President as Chair of the newly combined UC/CSU Visual and Performing Arts statewide entrance requirements. Ms. Marshall has received numerous grants and awards for her artistic and community work. She will retire from UCSD in June 2009.
