Student Dance Concert Oct. 29

October 27, 2009

Come support the arts! This annual event features original performances choreographed by students from the CSU Dance Department.

Variety of dances

A CSU dance tradition since 1987, don't miss this year’s opportunity to see a variety of dances choreographed and performed by students from the CSU Dance Department.

This concert gives both new and experienced choreographers, performers, and designers valuable experience.

Creative talent, innovative movement

Mackenzie Buffer, Marlis McChesney, Michelle Ruiz, and Blair Whitley, senior dance majors and members the CSU Tour Dance Company, will be directing the concert.

“We’ve had to be very organized when it comes to putting this concert together, as it is a very busy semester in the dance department, including a dance company performance in Mexico,” says director Michelle Ruiz.

Jessi Day and Chantel Doyon will each perform a unique piece for the audience. Day’s performance is a unique collaboration of dancing and singing; in one section, the modern dance is performed to a contemporary song, and another section is accompanied by other dancers singing. Doyon shows her incredibly creative talent as a choreographer as she uses a sheet to demonstrate innovative movement, lifts, and weight sharing incorporating a unique prop. [More]
