Montclair State Dance Division’s first concert of the year features choreography by the legendary Bill T. Jones. His D-Man in the Waters, set to Mendelssohn’s Octet in E Flat Major, was created in 1989 in honor of dancer Demian Acquavella, who died of AIDS. Abby Zbikowski, recipient of the 2017 Juried Bessie Award, will set a new work featuring her raw and hard-hitting style on Montclair State dance majors. Works-A-Foot also features works by the dance faculty, including Christian Von Howard and Fredrick Earl Mosley.
