  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]
  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]

Dance program to host show on Friday evening

University dance and choreography students will have the chance to apply what they’ve learned in class and have it seen by an audience.

The dance program will host a show on Friday at 8 p.m. in Eppler North room 222.

The program hosts a show at the end of each semester for students to perform what they’ve been working on in class for several weeks.

“One on Thursday and one on Friday,” said Colleen Murphy, program coordinator for the dance program. “Same show twice.”

Murphy said the performance provides students a chance to “find their artistic voice.”

“It’s a creative outlet for them,” Murphy said. “This is training for a professional career in dance.”

But there are different aspects involved with the dancing that goes into the show.

Murphy said there are elements involved with the dance such as modern hip-hop, jazz and tap.

“[The performance] shows the range of our program,” Murphy said.

Murphy mentioned the University Dance Alliance as an example of this range.

The student choreography is worked on within their classes and presented to the audience as a show.

“[Students] do have an academic component from their classes, but you take technique classes to perform so this is kind of like their final project,” Murphy said. “It’s kind of like the final exam for the dance classes.”

Leading up to the show, classes meet twice per week during the day, with choreographers who meet a few hours per week.

“[They] just come together the night before,” Murphy said.

On Wednesday night, the program had a dress rehearsal.

Tickets for the show can be purchased at the room of 222 Eppler North. The show is general admission and $5 per ticket, cash only. The dance program’s next show will be hosted at the end of the fall semester.
