NewsPress Release: 4/03/02MARLBORO, VT -- Marlboro College senior Rebecca Gembarowski will present a dance performance entitled, "Ancestral Help," at 8 p.m. April 26 and 27 in Persons Auditorium on campus.
The performance will explore the creation of visual moving images from the process of delving into Gembarowski's own personal family history and reconnecting with her ancestors through the memories of others. The performance is part of her Plan of Concentration in dance and writing.
Performers will include Gembarowski, Marlboro dance faculty members Alison Mott and Dana Holby, Brattleboro residents Liza Cassidy and Jane LoMonaco, and Carolyn Isaak of New Hampshire.
The Plan of Concentration is the cornerstone of Marlboro's academic program. It is an in-depth, self-designed exploration of a field or fields of each student's choosing. The Plan culminates in a major independent project involving research, one-to-one study with faculty in tutorials and a three-hour oral examination with Marlboro faculty and an outside examiner who is an expert in the student's field.

Its 300 undergraduate students enjoy a 7:1 student-faculty ratio, a voice in governing the community, and individualized courses of study on a 350-acre campus in the hills of southern Vermont.
