SMU’s 2010 Fall Dance Concert here just in time

Fall Dance ConcertOne of the more popular methods of relieving stress during the dregs of the late semester is finally returning to campus, and not a moment too soon.

Meadow’s 2010 Fall Dance Concert, a congregation of the Divsion of Dance‘s skills, techniques, and of course, top-tier dancers, is back for a five-night revue. This year’s performances highlight contemporary and jazz works, including Pithecanthropus Erectus by bass legend Charlie Mangus, the duet Alraune by the Pilobolus Dance Theatre, and Adam Hougland‘s daring contemporary ballet, Beyond.

Also included are works by new SMU Jazz instructor and faculty member Millicent Johnnie and new works by internationally known choreographer William Soleau. (KERA recently published an article on Soleau’s works- you can find it here.)

The Fall Dance Concert will run for five performances- at 8 p.m. each night from Wednesday, Nov. 10 to Saturday, Nov. 13th, and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 14th. All performances are in the Bob Hope Theatre at Meadows. Prices are $13 for adults, $10 for seniors, and $7 for faculty, staff and students. For more information on tickets, call 214-768-ARTS.
