Spring Dance Concert

May 7 & 8, 2010
7:30 PM
The Drama Theatre

Tickets: $6 students, $12 general admission

The performance will feature the sophisticated dance of guest artists Gina Milovan-Kohler and Jim Morrow, as well as an eclectic mix by FSU Dance Company members.

Using knowledge and exploration from classes and rehearsals, dance company members created original choreographies that will stimulate a multitude of emotions. With rapid energy and vibrant pacing, Sam Flowers and Brie Jordan use tap dance to commemorate famous dancers throughout history. Kira Stanley studied bumble bees to create a hip-hop piece that will have the audience "buzzing" to music by the Black Eyed Peas. And another high-energy piece, by Jasmine Clark, works closely with lighting and masks to present a technically demanding dance with unexpected movement and special effects. In addition to six student choreographies, Director Jamie McGreevy choreographed an all-female ensemble piece set to music from the Broadway production of "The Lion King." This dance explores the use of personal strength to break through barriers and pressures in life.

The Spring Dance Concert will also feature a duet titled "Excerpts of Dream Factories" by New York guest artists Milovan-Kohler and Morrow
