MTSU Fall Dance Concert Features ‘Eclectic’ Campus Choreography, Guest Performers

The MTSU Dance Theatre is celebrating 10 years of dancing at MTSU and around the world with a special Fall Dance Concert Nov. 21-23 featuring a selection from the Dance Theatre of Tennessee and an "eclectic array of work" from campus choreographers. 

“We are thrilled to foster this new partnership with DTT (the Dance Theatre of Tennessee) as they perform ‘The Waltz of the Flowers’ from Act II of the holiday favorite ‘The Nutcracker’ on opening night,” said Professor Marsha Barsky, director of the MTSU Dance Program. 

“While each choreographer has explored her own theme for her dance, each piece reflects the transfiguration of experience through a panoply of styles, sensibilities and compositions. The result is a concert filled with carefully crafted dances that are dynamic, timeless and cutting-edge."

Performances are scheduled Thursday-Saturday, Nov. 21-23, in MTSU’s Tucker Theatre at 7:30 each evening. You can buy tickets online at http://www.mtsu.edu/tuckertheatre or at the Tucker Theatre box office one hour before each show.

General admission tickets for the 2013 Fall Dance Concert are $10 for adults and $5 for children up to 12th grade, as well as $5 for MTSU staff and faculty. MTSU students with valid IDs will be admitted free.

The MTSU Arts production will include “an eclectic array of work from faculty and student choreographers,” Barsky said.

“Our performers work hard to acknowledge the past, revel in the present and carve out new pathways into the future,” she continued. 

The nationally recognized program, which focuses on research and creative activity by faculty and students, is kicking off its 10th anniversary season with this special Fall Dance Concert. Performances will feature a variety of genres ranging from classical ballet to contemporary dance and everything in between.
