This past winter, Dartmouth’s Sugarplum Dance Group made the Hood’s galleries and Russo Atrium a part of their creative work. During their annual photo shoot, the contemporary dancers drew inspiration from works of art and architectural features, striking elegant poses in our spaces. The Hood was thrilled to see its spaces activated with dance movements, only weeks after its reopening. Thank you, Sugarplum Dance Group, for making us part of your artistic process and for sharing these beautiful photos with us.
If you are a student group interested in collaborating with the Hood, please contact Isadora Italia, campus engagement coordinator.
