UCO KALEIDOSCOPE DANCE COMPANY PRESENTS FALL CONCERT NOV. 21-23
The University of Central Oklahoma Department of Dance will present the UCO Kaleidoscope Dance Company fall concert at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 21-23 at the Mitchell Hall Theater, located on campus.
“The Kaleidoscope concerts always feature a variety of styles and this fall’s concert is no exception,” said Tina Kambour, artistic director of the Kaleidoscope Dance Company.
Featured student dancers will perform a work choreographed by UCO 2003 dance alumna Masayo Yamaguchi. With her visit funded by the UCO Passport to Japan program, Yamaguchi will spend a week teaching and working with dance majors, sharing the knowledge she’s learned as a professional in New York after graduation.
Kaleidoscope will also premiere a choreographed work by former Pilobolus dancer Edwin Olvera titled “Decay.” Olvera conducted a workshop with six Central dance students last spring.
The concert will feature the works of two other 2013 Central guest artists including Lesley Snelson of Muscle Memory Dance Theatre in Dallas, Texas, and James Gregg of BJM Dance in Montreal, Canada.
Original compositions choreographed by Central faculty Hui Cha Poos, Michelle Moeller and Kambour will also be included.
Tickets are $14 for adults and $10 for senior citizens, UCO faculty and staff and non-UCO students. Central students can receive one free ticket per valid UCO I.D. Tickets can be purchased by calling 405-974-3375 or by visiting www.click4tix.com/uco.
