    Varied dance genres to be shown

    The Department of Fine and Performing Arts will be putting on their annual spring concert on Wednesday, March 12 at 9:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. in the Vonnie Borden Theatre.  
    All tickets are $5 and the proceeds will go towards helping dancers attend the American College Dance Festival this summer, where Southeastern will be performing three works. This year’s concert theme is entitled, “WE Are The DANCES.”
    The showcase will be under the creative direction of Skip Costa. The choreographers for the showcase are Faith Allen, Lindsy Brown, Christa Clement, Averi Harris, Summer Moore, Leah Reeb, Crystal Schayot, Hannah Waldron and Millinique Brown.
    Clement discussed the meaning behind one of her pieces in the showcase.
    “The title of my piece is called ‘Devotion to a Soldier’ and the theme of my piece is the struggle that military couples go through. People will see the happiness, the anger and the acceptance that these couples constantly have to go through because they are always having to leave [each other].”
    Reeb explained the theme of one of the dances she put together for the showcase.
    “I will be performing a solo about a girl who has been lost, felt unwanted and not welcomed,” said Reeb. “She goes through this phase of two people understanding her decisions, understanding why she chooses to walk away and she starts to feel happy and loved when she is around these people. But then a sudden shift happens and the two people that were there for her have passed on. She deals with the feeling of loss and she can’t let go.”
    Reeb encourages students to attend the show.
    “Each piece tells a different story. The dances are very versatile for this show which is what really makes a show great and unique,” said Reeb. “The dance department really enjoys having a great crowd out there to support us. I feel students will really understand that dancers are more than just leaps and turns. We can do more than what the stereotype is for us. I think students would really enjoy this show for the entertainment.”
    Tickets for the show will be sold in the D Vickers lobby one hour before each performance.
