Frostburg State University to Present Fall 2000 Dance Concert

The Frostburg State University Dance Company announces its Fall 2000 Dance Concert, featuring works by two award-winning guest artists, student dancers and Artistic Director Dr. Barry Fischer.

Performances are scheduled for Friday, Nov. 3 and Saturday, Nov. 4 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 5 at 2 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center Drama Theatre. Admission is $4 for students with ID and $7 for the general public.

Guest artists Patrik Bordovsky and Ursula Payne come from the world of collegiate dance to participate in an energetic and upbeat show for the young and the young-at-heart. As student dancers, each artist earned the prestigious Best Student Performer of the Year award from Dance Magazine and the American College Dance Festival.

Now a full-time member of the United States Air Force, Bordovsky brings hip-hop to FSU with his award-winning piece entitled "Crazy," featuring Madonna's latest hit, "Music." Not long after emigrating to the United States from Eastern Europe, Bordovsky took a dance class at Anne Arundel Community College, which inspired him to create "Crazy." He won Performer of the Year in 2000.

Payne, a full-time faculty member specializing in modern dance at Slippery Rock University, will perform two pieces. Her 1992 award for "All Aboardā€¦Sojourner" is set to the music of Philip Glass. Her other solo, "Being Single and Surviving Romance," features music from the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin. Payne recently received a $10,000 choreography fellowship from the Pennsylvania Council of the Arts.

The concert will also feature six works choreographed by student dance company members and two works by Dr. Fischer. The students' pieces include duet and group settings choreographed to classical to contemporary to African music. Dr. Fischer is contributing a solo piece and a group piece.

Tickets are available from the Performing Arts Center's Box Office, Monday to Friday from 2 to 4 p.m., beginning Oct. 30. For more information, call the Box Office at 301-687-7462.
