One Light

One Light | A Collaboration of Music and Dance

Conceived as a way for Baldwin Wallace University Community Arts School Dance students to process the events of 2020, One Light celebrates dance as an expression of identity and explores a transformative journey from isolation to community. This project was a collaboration of CAS Director of Dance and choreographer Heather Dennen, along with Dr. Clint Needham, Composer-In-Residence and Associate Professor of Composition at BW’s Conservatory of Music, who composed the original music.
