HOPKINSfor CENTER the ARTS
Campus + Community = Hop
All the elements added up when the Brazilian contemporary dance troupe Companhia Urbana de Dança spent a week at the Hop last April. Virtuosic young street dancers from the favelas of Rio who create compelling ensemble work, they brought a kinetic spirit to all corners of the Dartmouth campus and the Upper Valley. They collaborated with Dartmouth student dance groups, visited Dartmouth classes, taught a dance class for adults, performed for young people at HopStop and School Matinee performances, and left an indelible impression on middle and high school students at Vermont’s South Royalton School, with whom they spent four hours in a high-energy dance workshop. “I did something unexpected—I wasn’t originally going to participate,” said a ninth grader. “We are just going on a whim, and it’s amazing—like a universal language!” said a senior. The students forged connections—including through social media—with young people in one of the world’s most populous and complex nations. This kind of exchange takes place week in and week out at the Hop, engaging both Dartmouth and the wider community. Inspiring, world-class artists not only perform on Hop stages but connect with people across campus and throughout the region. Artists are commissioned to create new work, in exciting collaborations like the Hop’s STEM Arts program. Students and community members flock to Hop Ensemble concerts and Department of Theater productions. Dartmouth students also mentor young people in the community through programs like START (Students Teaching in the Arts) and the Dartmouth College Youth Winds.
