ISU Fall Dance Concert Opens December 6 (and Welcomes Donations for the Redbird Giving Tree)

Billed as a "celebration of movement, costumes, light, and music," the Illinois State University Fall Dance Concert opens next next week at ISU's Center for the Performing Arts. Performances begin on December 6 at 7:30 pm and continue at 7:30 pm on the 7th and 8th, with a 2 pm matinee also on the 8th.

This annual event features new choreographic pieces by faculty in the ISU School of Theatre and Dance as well as work by a few invited guest artists, all under the guidance of Sara Semonis, Artistic Director of Illinois State Dance Theatre.

Look for "an ecletic combination of modern, contemporary, and classical ballet styles" as ISU dance faculty and students kick up their heels and kick off the holiday season.

If you're interested in tickets, you can visit this Ticketmaster link or call 309-438-2535 to reach the Center for the Performing Arts box office directly.

Since the Redbird Giving Tree is also located in the Center for the Performing Arts, concertgoers may choose to bring nonperishable food items for donation to the Midwest Food Bank. If you bring a bag of cans and boxes, you will be able to drop it off under the Giving Tree when you arrive for the dance concert.
