FSU Sponsored PHILADANCO Dance Event to Include Pre-Performance Discussion and Master Dance Class
Frostburg State University invites dance aficionados to a pre-performance discussion with Joan Myers-Brown, PHILADANCO founder and artistic director on Saturday, March 16 at 7 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center Drama Theatre. This event immediately precedes the 8 p.m. performance of PHILADANCO at the same location.
Hailed by The New York Times as "exuberant," PHILADANCO is one of America's foremost dance ensembles. Celebrating its 31st season, the Philadelphia-based company is described by many as one with unparalleled energy and superior technical ability.
PHILADANCO will also hold a master dance class for dance students from FSU and the surrounding Maryland and West Virginia communities on Saturday afternoon, March 16. Taught by members of the PHILADANCO ensemble, the class will offer modern dance techniques.
