Gallaudet Dance Company
Gallaudet Dance Company members demonstrated graceful movements while conveying a
powerful message of hope in their performance of "Hero" at the May 9 installation of
Dr. Robert Davila as Gallaudet's ninth president. The popular song by Mariah Carey
and Walter Afanasieff was choreographed and translated into ASL by Maya Yamada, '92
& G-'96, a former member of the acclaimed dance company. Performing the song were
Sisakoth Chhun, Jasmine Fuller, Jessica Johnson, Virginia Jordan, Ismella Saul, and
An encore performance took place at the 138th Commencement exercises on May 11, where
the dancers were joined by Regina Bellamy, Ashley Mingo, Sky Samuel, Sarah Schell,
and Jamine Zachery for their dance interpretations of "The Power of Love", "Rocka My
Soul", and the late deaf theater giant - and Dance Company member - Gil Eastman's "Just
a Deaf Person's Thoughts".
The Dance Company has performed at every Gallaudet Commencement exercise since 1956.
Dance Company Director Diane Hottendorf said the dancers first performed "Hero" after
the national tragedy of September 11, 2001, when America was looking for a hero in its
effort to unite and stand strong. Hottendorf said the dancers felt that the song was
an appropriate one for Gallaudet as Dr. Davila leads it to a brighter future.

by Orkun from The Netherlands|
Mariah can only be compared to herself since she is in a league she rules. No one can deny that. She is definitely improving and you calling this a "rebirth" is very much in place. She lips less and getting back in shape like 3 steps at a time. Perfect? No. Better? Oh yes. To me, it looks like she is back on earth. It's sweet that Sharon Osbourne d... read more
