Choreography by Ilana Goldman

Sydney Parker (FAC Dance 2015) performed in the Boston Contemporary Dance Festival in August in Out of Sight, choreographed by Ilana Goldman, Assistant Professor of Dance at Florida State University.

She also attended the Movement Invention Project for three weeks this past summer in NYC where she studied improvisation, ballet-along with Image Tech (a standing preparation for ballet class created by Alexandra Wells that combines Alexander Technique and Irene Dowd's work), contemporary technique and Gaga. The main emphasis was placed on improvisation as a vehicle for movement research. She worked with choreographers and dance artists: Sidra Bell, Alexander Wells, Elia Mrak, Troy Ogilvie, Shamel Pitts and Shannon Gillen.

Sydney is currently a sophomore at Florida State University where she is a double major in Dance and Arts Management.
