Venue: UA Dance
Time: Times vary, please check website
This performance by talented students at the UA School of Dance combines popular music to classical, jazz rifs to baroque, from harp to jimbe, and from tap to ballet, modern and jazz dance, at UA Stevie Eller Dance Theatre on the University of Arizona campus. This year's Spring Collection will feature creations by Tamara Dyke-Compton, Autumn Eckman, Elizabeth George-Fesch and others. As the centerpiece we offer Amy Ernst's evocative work titled In the Shadows of the Dreamers. The dancers in this piece are called on to capture moments separating dream from reality, despair from hope. To Eric Whitacre's haunting Five Hebrew Love Songs, the work pays tribute to the 75th year of remembrance marking the liberation of Auschwitz. With its intimate 300 seat auditorium and spacious stage, Stevie Eller Dance Theatre is the best place to experience the athleticism and artistry of this extraordinary ensemble, at 1737 E University Blvd.
