Ridiculous Rigor: Past, Present, and Possible, a postmodern dance choreographed by Bailey Anderson with input from the dancers, was selected as part of the Gala Concert performance at the Mid-Atlantic North regional conference of the American College Dance Association (ACDA) from March 4-7, 2020, at the University of Maryland, at College Park, MD. This work explores the idea of rigor, what rigor could possibly be, and what rigor is in the modern day world. This video is a rehearsal for the performance.


Presented as part of the Ursinus College Celebration of Student Achievement (CoSA) held April 23 – April 30, 2020.

The downloadable file is an MP4 video with a run time of 9:11.

Details of Ursinus' participation in the ACDA conference, as well as photographs from the event, are available here.
