The Nicholson twins, who are Ariana Grande’s world tour creative directors and lead dancers, came back to the College of Fine Arts’ dance program in October for their second residency in less than two years, leading master classes as well as rehearsals to get students ready for the upcoming event.
“In my career, I have only witnessed a few times that such a positive, creative energy overtakes an environment,” said Lana Heylock, Assistant Professor of Dance, who taught the pair at the University of Akron before she joined the College of Fine Arts faculty. “JU dancers still talk about the energy, technique and lessons learned from the previous guest residency. … Get Outta My Way is sure to have the audience up on their feet cheering.”
Artist credits for the Nicholson brothers include Grande, Janet Jackson, Kelly Rowland, Beyonce, Daddy Yankee, Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey and Jaicko, as well as commercial credits such as “Saturday Night Live.”
The popular annual Fall Dance Concert is filled with variety and versatility, in which dance faculty and guest artists choreograph dance based in theatricality. In conjunction, Visual Arts will host the Fall for the Arts sale.
