Theatre/Dance ISU Presents "Transitions: Dance ISU In Concert"

Theatre/Dance ISU will present "Transitions: Dance ISU in Concert," billed as a compelling evening of diverse dance works, at 7:30 p.m. March 3-5 in Frazier Hall's Diane and Chick Bilyeu Theatre.

This concert will feature a blend of various types of dance ranging from ballet and modern, to hip hop and jazz. The concert will feature six distinctly different pieces and more than 40 dancers.

ISU students make up the bulk of the performers at this year's concert. Auditions were held in August 2010 and each choreographer and performer has been in rehearsal perfecting their performance piece.

This year's concert will include works by Joséphine Garibald as well as ISU dance instructors Lauralee Zimmerly, Molly Jorgensen, Paul Zmolek, Sergiu Brindusa, owner/operator of Brindusa-Moore Ballet Academy and Dr. Lindsay Tucker.

Under the direction of Garibaldi, the dance department has developed and submitted a dance major program proposal to accommodate the growing number of dance minor students at ISU.

Tickets are available now at the Performing Arts Center Box Office, by phone at ext. 3595 or online at Ticket prices area $15 for adults, $9 for children ages 6-18, and $7 for ISU students. All prices include a $2 facility service fee and sales tax. Discounts are given for groups of 10 or more.
