Tyler Gilstrap set two pieces of choreography on the dancers in October, two weeks after Brian McGinnis was in residence.

Her first piece, “We Declare” has choreographic roots from The Feast Conference held at Pioneer Works for which she was the choreographer. Ms Gilstrap’s, “We Declare” and “Ascent” will be performed in the annual dance concert April 23 and 24 in the Wade Hampton High School Theatre.
