The dance program will stage a Works in Progress show Dec. 7 highlighting routines students will be performing for their Spring Show.
The Works in Progress show will take place at 7 p.m. Dec. 7 in the auditorium of McAllister Fine Arts Center. The performance is open to the public, and tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the door.
This is the first year the program has done a Works in Progress show in which students perform routines they have prepared for the Spring Show May 10.
Money raised from Dec. 7 event will be used to send members of the Dance Club to dance workshops at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville. Twelve students will attend the workshops Jan. 24-27.
The dance program moved from the kinesiology department and became part of the fine arts department this fall.
“The biggest difference being part of the fine arts department is being able to collaborate with the theater department dancers,” kinesiology Professor George Ann Simpson said.
More than 100 students taking dance classes will be in the show. Students from tap, jazz, ballet, lyrical, modern dance and the dance performance class will be performing.
“Any time you do something for the first time, it’s always very exciting. This show is no exception,” Simpson said.
