Athens, Ga. – The University of Georgia Franklin College of Arts and Sciences department of dance will present the Emerging Choreographers Informal Showing on Dec. 5 at 7 p.m. and Dec. 6 at 3 p.m. in the New Dance Theatre in the dance building on Sanford Drive.

The showing marks the second performance of the annual fall semester Young Choreographers Series, which premieres choreographic works by UGA dance majors. The works reflect each choreographer’s creative process, movement vocabulary and artistic perspective.

“After working all semester conceiving a choreographic idea, developing vocabulary and then crafting that material in space and time with dancers, it is always quite interesting to see the variety of works that manifest,” said Rebecca Gose, an associate professor of dance.

The students prepared the pieces within either the Young Choreographers’ Lab or Dance Composition I course. The works count toward the students’ fulfillment of their bachelor’s or bachelor’s of fine arts degrees in dance.

Tickets are $5. Advance tickets can be purchased at the Tate Student Center Cashier’s Window, the Performing Arts Center Box Office, online at www.pac.uga.edu or by calling 706-542-4400. Tickets will be available at the door beginning an hour before each performance.
