LEWISTON —  The Bates College Modern Dance Company will present  its annual spring concert of new works by students taking courses in dance composition, computer music and costume design. There will also be contributions from student lighting designers.

  Projects include research on the creative process of choreographing dance as a visual art form; the rhythmic patterns of American tap and Bharatanatyam, one of India’s oldest classical dance forms; and the complexities of relationships in times of transition.
