Bede Leyendecker, assistant professor, said the evening will introduce
the audience to various dance styles being taught at TAMIU, and demonstrate
the abilities of the students.
"It will be wonderful to see all the hard work the students have
put into the semester. Because so many different groups will participate,
the audience will get to see a cross-section of the dance world,"
The jazz and ballet classes, the Modern Performance Troupe, the Flamenco
Troupe and the Concert Choreography class will all contribute to the program.
"With music composed by such diverse artists as Shakira, Destiny's
Child, traditional Flamenco music and the waltz from Tchaikovsky's ballet
'Sleeping Beauty,' everyone is bound to see something they like and probably
something they've never seen before," explained Leyendecker.
This semester's concert will also feature the choreographic works of
ten university students. Jennifer Brewster, Adriana Canales, Alex Cardenas,
Gabriela Chapa, Juan Pablo Flores, Ivette Ortega, Jackie Reyes, Monica
Reyes, Cindy Rodriguez and Victor Soto will present dances in fulfillment
of their requirements for the 'Concert Choreography' class.
