The Fredonia Dance Ensemble returns for its 13th annual performances. Featuring choreography by faculty and guest artists, the Fredonia Dance Ensemble concert promises an unforgettable evening of dance.
From slow, sustained modern dance to upbeat, contemporary hip hop, the 2019 Fredonia Dance Ensemble concert explores a variety of movement aesthetics and features performances by the talented Dance majors at the State University of New York at Fredonia.
"The concert showcases different movement styles from each of the choreographers and highlights the diversity of talent in the BFA Dancers," said Artistic Director Paula J. Peters, a Theatre and Dance faculty member.
Two pieces are choreographed by guest artists. Buffalo-based hip-hop artist James Levy, who staged a work for last season's Dance Ensemble event, has returned with a new piece for this year's concert. Jason Ohlberg, an assistant professor of Dance at Skidmore College, has restaged an existing trio into a work for nine dancers.
Three pieces have been choreographed by Theatre and Dance faculty members - one each by Peters, Sam Kenney and Angelika Summerton.
There are 29 students performing and 21 production/design students are involved in the production.
The Faculty Student Association will offer snacks, light hors d'oeuvers, beer, wine, coffee and soft drinks at the Atrium Café, which is located by the entrance to Marvel Theatre, at the two evening performances. Service will begin one hour before curtain time and continue through the end of intermission at each event
