Warming up with 'Winter Dance'
Once again, expect to see some fantastic choreography and controlled execution from these dancers.
The season will close with several pieces new to the dance stage. Susan Quinn's animated life study, "Blackbird," will have its Tucson premiere, as will Michael Williams' work with the music of Harry Connick Jr., entitled "Between the Lines."
As always, there will be student work featured in the show, including a new tap piece by Allison Richy, a solo dance by Tiffany Hansen called "Little Girl," and Tzu-Hua Chen's Chinese sleeve-dance, "Shadow Beauty," which was recently selected as the first-prize winner in this year's UA Student Showcase.
Of course, no winter dance concert would be complete without a movement from "The Nutcracker." Hence, Cesar Rubio and Deborah Kenner will be dancing the "Grand Pas de Deux."
The Winter Concert series will have two different programs, both performed in the Ina Gittings Dance Theater. The first program takes place tonight and Saturday at 8 p.m. The second program will be held tomorrow night at 8 p.m. and Saturday at 2 p.m. General admission is $8 and student/senior admission is $6. Tickets will be available at the door or by contacting the Fine Arts Box Office at 621-1162.
