Fall dance concert spotlights student performances

Department of Theatre and Dance Concert

The Department of Theatre and Dance will present its fall dance concert, “Fall and Recovery,” Nov. 13 - 15 in the University Theatre. The evening of dance works performed by LU students encompasses many genres, including tap, jazz, musical theatre, modern and contemporary, and is choreographed by dance faculty and select students.

Victoria Brown, choreographer and dancer for television, print and music videos, will be a special guest artist in the production.

“Our fall dance concert promises to have something for everyone’s aesthetic,” said Travis Prokop, assistant professor of dance. “Modern dance pioneer Doris Humphrey coined the dance technique named ‘Fall and Recovery,’ which focuses on the body’s response to gravity. In the most general terms, dance is this response. Our hope is that the term ‘Fall and Recovery’ will become synonymous with LU’s fall dance concert, and it will become an event the community looks forward to every fall.” 

Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 13 and Saturday, Nov. 14, and 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 15. The University Theatre is located at 4400 S. Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway on the LU campus.

Tickets are $15 for general admission; $10 for senior citizens, students and LU faculty/staff; and $7 for LU students.
