Wonderful dance performances are not rare in Greenville, since a number of great local companies and touring troupes perform here regularly, but the chance to see exceptionally talented young dancers performing the works of top-tier choreographers in an intimate setting and for mere pennies IS rare indeed. The Fine Arts Center Dance Concert will take place Friday, April 26, at 7 p.m. in the theatre at Wade Hampton High School (adjacent to the Fine Arts Center). This venue is the perfect setting, as there's not a bad seat in the house! In addition, admission to this event is only $5. Wait, that cannot be right, can it? Did I misplace a zero or drop a digit? Nope. Five bucks it is (although the dance program will gladly accept donations).
The repertory will include
choreography by Tim Glenn (Associate Professor in the School of
Dance at Florida State University and former dancer with Nikolais & Murray Louis Dance Company),
Sara Procopio (founding member and former Artistic Associate of Shen
Wei Dance Arts), Tyler Gilstrap (founding member of Battleworks Dance
Company and featured dancer in such films as Across the Universe), Andrew Kuharsky (Director of the Greenville
Ballet) and Rebecca Lee (Wildwood Ballet and FAC alumna).
Still not convinced that you don't want to miss this? You can see a number of videos from last year's concert here. Wanna know more about FAC dance? We think this says it all. You may also follow the FAC Dance blog.
We'll see you on the 26th!
