MTSU Dance Theatre Spring Concert April 25 – 27, 7:30 P.M. Tucker Theatre, Boutwell Dramatic Arts

MTSU Dance Theatre will present their Spring Dance Concert April 25th – 27th at 7:30 P.M. in Tucker Theatre. This concert highlights the exceptional creative activity done by students and faculty within the program. Presented will be dances appealing to a variety of tastes; modern, jazz, West African, and classical ballet. Five of the dances featured have been created by faculty members over the course of the semester and demonstrate the educational mission of the program to provide high quality experiential learning opportunities for the forty dancers in MTSU Dance Theatre. Three additional dances shown have been created by guest artists with the support of a grant through the Tennessee Board of Regents Diversity and Access Program. Guest artists Heidi Schill Clemmens of Western Illinois University and Angie Simmons of Evolving Door Dance Theatre of Denver, CO each worked with students during three week residencies to explore diversity as a theme within their creative work.
