CONTINUING THE LEGACY Returns to COCA, 2/8

Written and directed by COCA alumnus Chris Page, this 40-minute performance uses dance as a vehicle to take audience members through black history -- from slavery to the jazz era, through the civil rights movement, to modern times. Large photographs are projected behind the dancers and create a vivid accompaniment to the modern dance choreography. Continuing the Legacy helps audience members see, hear and feel the journey of African Americans in this country. Performers are members of COCAdance, COCA's student company. Continuing the Legacy is supported by Wells Fargo Advisors. The performance is recommended for children ages 10+ and their parents.

Christopher E. Page received his education and dance training from COCA and the Conservatory
of Music & Dance at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. An alumnus of COCAdance, Page is
a member of the Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Ensemble in Denver, CO. In his third season with
the company, Page is the rehearsal director for the Youth Ensemble.
The Artistic Director of Nu-World Contemporary Danse Theatre, Page has also been a soloist for
the Kansas City Friends of Alvin Ailey, a member of the WylliamsHenry Contemporary Dance
Company and the OwenCox Dance Group. Other theatrical credits include the St. Louis Black
Rep, Stages St. Louis and The Muny.

Page is resident choreographer for COCA's Summer Musical and has also choreographed for the
Cleo Parker Robinson Youth Ensemble, East Central College, That Uppity Theatre Co., UMKC
Musical Theatre & Opera Department (choreographing both musical theatre and opera
productions), COCAdance, The Slaughter Project Dance Company, The Madison-Cannon Project
and high schools, churches and community theatres. He has served on faculty as a dance
instructor for Metro Theatre Company, COCA, Cleo Parker Robinson Dance, City Arts Camp at
Third Baptist Church, Best Talent Center and the Kansas City Metropolitan Dance Theatre. He
has assisted and restaged works by DeAnna Hiett, Rodni Williams and Sabrina Madison-Cannon.
