UW-Green Bay Theatre and Dance will present DanceWorks, a concert of faculty and student choreography, at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 4 and Saturday, April 5 at the University Theatre in Theatre Hall on campus, 2420 Nicolet Drive.
The show will celebrate dance with a diverse medley of styles, showcasing two student-choreographed pieces in addition to those choreographed by UW-Green Bay faculty member and DanceWorks Artistic Director Denise Carlson-Gardner.
“This is a very exciting, very eclectic concert,” Carlson-Gardner said. “There’s a wide variety, from hip-hop and jazz to musical theatre and our new American clog dance … a real array. You can expect a very well-rounded evening with lots of very good music and very good dancing — and a lot of joy from the students.”
This is the second year DanceWorks will be presented as a mainstage production, after the UW-Green Bay Theatre program was renamed UW-Green Bay Theatre and Dance for the 2012-13 academic year. It is the fourth mainstage production of the 2013-14 academic year for UW-Green Bay Theatre and Dance.
