Impact: An Original Student-Choreographed Dance Concert

 

Southern Utah University, Cedar City, Utah: Southern Utah University’s Department of Theatre Arts and Dance presents an evening full of exquisite choreography at Impact: An Original Student-Choreographed Dance Concert. Performances will be held in the Randall L. Jones Theatre on November 30 and December 1, 2, 3, and 5 at 7:30 p.m. with a matinee performance on December 3 at 2 p.m. Tickets for the concert are $10 for adults, $5 for youth, and free for SUU Faculty, Staff, and students with a valid ID.

 

Kay Andersen, Chair of the Department of Theatre Arts and Dance, said, “The process that creates the student dance concert is one of the highlights of my year. I see firsthand, students utilizing tools they experienced in improvisation and dance composition coursework. Through this process of producing dance for the mainstage, it thrills me to see them continue to find their creative voice, finding unique gesture to communicate ideas through choreography. This process brings together dance and technical theatre students in an experience that is innovative, dynamic, and always educational.”

 

This concert has many diverse pieces that range from traditional Chinese dance to choreography representing the Salem Witch trials. From beautiful choreography and music to original costumes and lighting, there will be something for everyone to enjoy.

 

Kathleen Fotheringham is a senior and double major of history and dance education from Saratoga Springs, Utah. She said that the most rewarding part of the rehearsal process, “is watching the choreography we've prepared evolve over the course of just a few months. It's amazing to see the final products and the art that students can create in such a short amount of time.”

 

A senior Dance Education major from Payson, Utah, Mekinzey Parks said, “It has been so rewarding to be able to work with dancers who are ready to deal with my crazy ideas and ever repeating rehearsals. They are always present and focused and it has been a pleasure to work with dancers I have never had the chance to work with. They are all amazing and beautiful.”
