Frostburg State University’s Department of Theatre and Dance presents its annual fall Dance Concert on Nov. 11 and 12 at 7:30 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center’s Drama Theatre. Every dance, influenced by the unique technical grace of each performer, is premiered for the first time during this annual fall event. Nine creative works, sure to entertain audiences of all ages, will fill the evening.
This year’s concert offers a montage of diverse styles and original choreography exploring human nature. Samantha Flowers and Jordan Kline join forces to create “There’s Nothing Wrong With Who You Are,” which focuses on individuality and the acceptance of others and self. In “Untold Story,” Elisia Daniels explores the idea that behind every breakdown, beauty can be found.
In two pieces choreographed by company director Jamie McGreevy, dance company members will take the stage together. “I Rise” is an abstract interpretation of the famous Maya Angelou poem “Still I Rise,” where the dancers will break down performance barriers to speak and move as themselves. And, in the final piece of the night, McGreevy and dance company members collaborate in an exploration of movement, effort, time and sound to music of the ever-popular Blue Man Group.
On Saturday, Nov. 12, the FSU Dance Company will offer free master classes in jazz-funk, modern and contemporary styles for students ages 10 and older. For more information on the master classes, contact McGreevy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
