Dance Dance Dance at IWU

IWU's student-choreographed dance concert waltzes into the Hansen Student Center this weekend, with performances on Saturday and Sunday.

Well, I doubt they'll be waltzing. This is, after all, a new generation, more likely to bring hip hop and krump moves than anything ballroom into their dances. On the other hand, Illinois Wesleyan is the school that brought us Evan Kasprzak, the theatrical dancer who took TV's "So You Think You Can Dance" by storm with his smooth jazz and tap stylings.

Who knows? You may just see the next Evan Kasprzak at this very performance!

On the technical side, Ian Coulter-Buford and Annie Simpson are producing the event, with Raven T. Stubbs as stage manager, Celeste Kelly as house manager and Sheri Marley acting as their advisor.

Choreographers include Amy Bannon, Blake Brauer, Andrea Cain, Ian Coulter-Buford, Miranda Kiefer, Becca Lydon, Chase Miller, Alix Ozaki, Nicholas Reinhart, Abigail Root, Josh Levinson & Kate Rozycki, Julie Tucker and Britta Whittenberg.

Performances are scheduled for Saturday, January 22nd at 8 pm and Sunday, January 23rd at 4 pm, and admission is free.
