DANCE FOR THE RIVER, presented by Yadkin Riverkeeper, is an exhibit and interdisciplinary education and awareness program spearheaded by Photographer Christine Rucker that combines dance and photography to educate about clean water. Rucker traveled the length of the river with UNCSA dance students and professional dancers; and used dance and photography to interpret the variety of the river and its environmental threats. In addition to the exhibit, an accompanying education program will travel throughout North Carolina for the next year.
The program is a collaborative effort between Christine Rucker Photography, Yadkin Riverkeeper, Phoebe Zerwick, Helen Simoneau Danse, UNC School of the Arts’ School of Dance, Yadkin Arts Council, and the Wake Forest University Humanities Institute. Sponsors for the program include Yadkin Riverkeeper, Wells Fargo, the John W. and Anna H. Hanes Foundation, Yadkin Arts Council, John Willingham, Ralph Womble, National Endowment for the Humanities and Wake Forest University Humanities Institute.
