The 7th Annual Dance Concert



Julie Petry, Artistic Director
April 23 & 24, 2017
Free to all. Tickets available at the door.
Mitrani Hall in Haas Center for the Performing Arts

Covering a vast array of exciting dance styles, we invite you to this year's 7th Annual Dance Minor Concert. Featuring a blend of student, faculty and staff talents, alongside varied guest artist designers in lighting, costuming, choreography and performance, we look forward to taking you on an expressive journey. This year's concert features works investigating political and social commentary on racism, an exciting exploration of props--including fabric, elastics and drumsticks, a glimpse at the different aspects of loving relationships that fail and/or succeed, to dances exploring the acceptance of one's own body. This concert promises to leave the audience with a piggy bank full of powerful imagery, and unforgettable moments connecting energy, music, expression, and visual meaning. We hope to see you there!

Beyond Communication: Three plays in three days (Student-driven Project)


April 5, 6 and 7, 2017
Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday at 7:30pm
Performances on the Mitrani Stage in the Haas Center for Performing Arts
Free to all. Tickets available at the door.

Beyond Communication is our featured Student Driven Projects this year. These are three plays written by students from the Advanced Scriptwriting class. The plays are entirely performed and directed by students. Each night will feature a different play by a different playwright, and we will hold a talkback session following the performances in order to allow the audience to give feedback for the artists. The main goal of the talkbacks will be to provide information to the playwright pertaining to audience impact. This will help the playwright in further revising of the work
