The University of Georgia department of dance presents REPERTORY Movement Refracted, the 2019 spring dance concert, April 4-6 at 8 p.m. and April 6 at 2 p.m. in the New Dance Theatre, located in the Dance Building, between Soule and Green streets (off Sanford Drive) on UGA’s South Campus in Athens.

REPERTORY Movement Refracted offers an array of movement and choreographic styles. Based in the essential qualities of human movement and the range of human emotions, this choreographic collage offers a variety of dance styles, aesthetics and sensibilities, showcasing the students’ training as complete performing artists with moving minds and thinking bodies.

“We invite the campus community to come and enjoy a uniquely diverse event performed by UGA dance students,” said Elizabeth Osborn-Kibbe, a faculty member in the dance department and co-director of the concert. “Audiences will be captivated by explorations of both classical and contemporary ballet, the juxtaposition of postmodern pedestrian movement with contemporary sensibilities and the kinetic energy featured in guest appearances by the CORE Contemporary and Aerial Dance Company.”

Faculty and guest choreography will be performed by dance department students. Attendees are invited to meet the dancers at a reception following the April 5 performance. 

Tickets are $16 for adults and $12 for students and seniors. Groups of eight or more are eligible for a $5 group rate. Tickets can be purchased at the Performing Arts Center box office, by calling 706-542-4400 or online at pac.uga.edu. Tickets can also be purchased at the Tate Student Center and will be available at the door one hour before each performance. Parking is available in lots adjacent to the Dance Building or in the South Campus parking deck for a fee.
