Dancers skirt across stage like skating on ice

American dancer Loie Fuller helped pioneer modern dance and theatrical lighting techniques in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Taking her cue from this innovator and being the world’s foremost interpreter of Fuller’s dance style, Jody Sperling will present “Dancing in the Arctic.” This will be a culmination of her work with Brenau University dancers as she shares her experiences dancing on Arctic sea ice.

The free dance production will be at 1 p.m. Friday, Feb. 26, in the Brenau Downtown Center at 301 Main St. SW, Gainesville. A panel discussion with Sperling and members of Brenau faculty from various disciplines will follow.

The artistic director of Time Lapse Dance, Sperling will be in residence with the Brenau University department of dance through Feb. 26.
