Please join the University of Washington Dance Program for its annual concert of undergraduate choreography featuring nine original dances.  This popular concert offers a unique opportunity for undergraduates, many of whom are experiencing their choreography fully produced for the first time.

Although the artistic director is a faculty member, the production of the concert is a community effort. Each choreographer contributes extra time on top of orchestrating their own rehearsals to help with everything from writing programs and designing posters, to offering supportive feedback to their peers. Some of the highlights include a collaboration with a composer from digital art and experimental media (DXARTS), costumes consisting of latex body paint, and a dance exploring Hip Hop subcultures, both past and present. The concert also includes the premiere of a group piece choreographed and performed by all of the choreographers.

The result is a fresh take on concert dance from a youthful perspective.General admission tickets are $14, $12 UW faculty/staff, UWAA members, and $10 students/seniors. Tickets are available at the UW Arts Ticket office at:

3901 University Way NE,
at (206) 543-4880
or online at www.meany.org.
