LADC Presents the 2022 Spring Dance Concert

The Loyola Academy Dance Company (LADC) was thrilled to host its 2022 Spring Dance Concert back at the North Shore Center for the Performing Arts in Skokie for the first time since 2019! This annual showcase represents the culmination of a year's worth of hard work by the company, which is directed by LADC Moderator and Dance Teacher Debbie Henslee. Held over two days, May 5 and May 6, the dancers inspired audiences with their incredible talent and creativity. The pieces performed were all original works choreographed and performed by LADC, Honors Dance, Dance Beat/Design and Dance Collective.
This year, Mary Slowinski ’20, Loyola Academy alumna and former LADC member, served as a special guest choreographer. Now a sophomore at Northwestern University, Mary’s dance concert was canceled during her senior year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and so this was a wonderful opportunity for Mary to bring her dance, “YZ?,” to the stage—two years later! The piece is a reflection of Gen Z’s temperament and frustration towards the state of our planet, both environmentally and politically.

The concert featured ten beautifully student-choreographed dances:
