Department of Theatre and Dance presents ‘Day of Dance’ on April 8

March 28, 2017

Troy University’s Department of Theatre and Dance will give young dancers a chance to learn more about their craft at Day of Dance: All Access to Pink Floyd on April 8.

Dancers ages 13 and up have until March 31 to register for the third annual event, which features four classes per dancer, one free ticket to the performance of Shine On: Dancing with Pink Floyd, a session focusing on the art of making dance for young choreographers and a question-and-answer session titled “Working in the Industry.”

The event beginning at the Long Hall Dance Studio.

“The purpose of Day of Dance is to introduce TROY’S bachelor of fine arts in Dance and the TROY campus to dancers in those areas from which we recruit,” said Deborah Hicks, coordinator of dance. “Typically, these are surrounding states — Mississippi, Tennessee, Florida, Georgia — but we even have some coming from Wisconsin this year. It’s a full day of dance offering a wide variety of dance genres including repertoire from Shine On, the spring dance concert. The day closes with a showcase of what dancers have learned at day’s end.”

The Day of Dance is free to participants, and lunch will be provided.
