Johnny Cox to Perform in "Table of Silence"

Thank you, Johnny Cox, Dance class of 2015, for the following update on your first year at UCSB:

"This past year.   

  • Was part of the UCSB Freshman Dance Company which worked on several dances throughout the year for our final performance this past February. 
  • Got to meet Twyla Tharp in person and the chance to be in an dance of hers with the involvement of the Santa Barbara community called "The One Hundreds."  
  • Was in the Spring Dance concert "Aspire" directed by Jerry Pearson, who danced with Nikolais Dance Theatre. 
  • Took master classes with company members from Alvin Ailey, Akram Khan, Twyla Tharp, and Grupo Corpo.  
  • Will perform tomorrow (May 23rd, 2016) at 12 noon, the "Table of Silence" a dance by former Martha Graham principle Jacqulyn Buglisi in honor of those who lost their lives in the Isla Vista shooting 2014.  

The "Table of Silence" can be streamed live tomorrow (May 23rd) from the link below: 

I want to give a shout-out to Betzi Roe, Matt Carney, Tiffany Bagg, Gina Bolles Sorenson, and the instructors in the Musical Theater department for helping me get to this dance department where I am today!"
