Reverie

Choreographed by Ruby Josephine Smith

Dancers: Hayley Larson, Lisa Yanofsky, Julia Garber, Ana MeiLi Carling, Ruby Smith, Simone Lute, Jackie Pitts, Emma Kimmel

Performed in Spring Back 2012, Oberlin College’s annual spring showcase

Reverie was Ruby's first piece as a dance major at Oberlin College. It is a dream-like piece exploring the sheep-mentality of being in any kind of group and how it feels to be released from a state of manipulation, or for that matter any state in which you do not belong.
