ROCK HILL, S.C. - Love is a mystery, and it is one that student choreographers Lauren Bohn and Jamie Drye will explore in "Love Moves," a full-length dance show directed, choreographed and designed by students. The production will run Feb. 4-7 at 8 p.m. and Feb. 8 at 2 p.m. at Johnson Studio Theatre. The show will be the first dance production performed in the theatre.

Bohn, a native of Atlanta, Ga., and Drye of Concord, N.C., will direct a cast of 12 student dancers in an interpretative exploration into the complexities of human relationships and portrayal of "the ways we experience love in our everyday lives."

Performers include Megan Hoeffner (Bivalve, Md.); Melissa Lineburg (Charleston, W.Va.); Ashley Crouch (Clover); Rochelle Stones (Cheraw); Kaitlyn Eden (Barnwell); Heather Mielke (Myrtle Beach); Megan Friend (Greer); Reba Bowens (Charleston); Malcolme Rembert (Columbia); Everett Johnson (Queens, N.Y.); Abby Pitchford (Columbia, Mo.); Morgan Crowder (Clinton); and Darryl LaPlante (Goose Creek).

On the artistic production staff are Stephanie Cantrell (Mill Spring, N.C.), stage manager; Ben Pierce (Rock Hill), costume designer; Cayci Andrews (Chapin), lighting designer; and Caitlyn Baldwin (Charleston), set designer/assistant stage manager.

Bohn, who has worked with Drye for more than nine months to direct and choreograph "Love Moves," said her experience has been memorable, and she encourages more students to "take advantage of this opportunity to showcase dance and to involve other students in such an enriching creative process."
