Dance Program Presents Fall Concert
The NC State Dance Program will present its annual fall concert today and Friday, Nov. 17-18, at 8 p.m. in Stewart Theatre inside Talley Student Union. The concert will feature dances in a variety of styles, including contemporary ballet, tap, jazz, African and modern.
NCSU Dance Company, a modern dance company nationally acclaimed by the American College Dance Association, will present Flutter, choreographed by the Dance Program’s newly appointed director, Tara Z. Mullins, and No. 21/2 structures, choreographed by Durham, N.C.-based artist Justin Tornow. Flutter is inspired by a dear friend of Mullins who loved butterflies and who lost a battle with cancer.
The Panoramic Dance Project, dedicated to exploring diverse dance styles, will present pieces choreographed by guest artists Chuck Davis, founder of Durham’s African American Dance Ensemble, and Willie Hinton.
In addition, the concert will feature the work of student choreographers who created original dance pieces based on extensive research.
Also included in the fall concert is a contemporary ballet piece choreographed by Cherilyn Joy Lee, director of City Ballet Raleigh. The piece highlights the advanced ballet training of two NC State student dancers.
As one of the six programs of Arts NC State, the Dance Program gives NC State students in any major the opportunity to study dance through performance and choreography.
