Havelock Ellis, English physician and writer once said, “dancing is the loftiest, the most moving, the most beautiful of the arts, because it is not mere translation or abstraction from life; it is life itself.” For three days in Nov., dance students at the UCA will show audiences a piece of their life, performing dance-works from classes department-wide.
The Fall Dance Concert features the performance and choreography of new Assistant Professor of Dance Madeline Harvey; the Ballet Repertory Ensemble student performers, and guest faculty performance and choreography by Matthew Harvey. Selected student choreographers and performers show their creative work, and technical production and design for the concert features student designers, stage managers, and technicians. With a wonderful balance of classical, contemporary, and theatrical ballet elements, a highlight of the evening will be the balcony scene from Sergei Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet, performed by Madeline and Matthew Harvey.
