UPDATE: “Fall for Dance” postponed due to weather

Nevada Union High School Theatrical Dance has postponed its “Fall for Dance performances Friday and Saturday due to weather. The event will be rescheduled in January. The event features lecture/demonstration of choreography set on advanced dancers in the high school’s Dance Room.

“Fall for Dance” includes a variety of dance styles, including jazz, modern, character and hip-hop. The show will also provide a glimpse at a new work in progress being created for the department’s upcoming spring dance production in 2014.

Artistic director Courtney Wadman discusses each of the works presented and the dance curriculum offered at the high school. The performance will also include a selection of student choreography projects inspired by famous dance choreographers. The students describe their collaborative process for creating pieces inspired by pioneers of modern dance such as Isadora Duncan, Martha Graham and Paul Taylor, as well as more contemporary world-renowned choreographers like Shen Wei, who choreographed the opening ceremony for the Beijing Olympics, or Isreali choreographer Ohad Naharin, noted for his creation of Gaga Technique.

Performances will be at 6:30 p.m. Friday, and 2 p.m. Saturday in the NU Dance Room (located next to the pool) at 11761 Ridge Road, Grass Valley. Tickets are $7 general admission, and are on sale at Briar Patch Co-op, The Bookseller, and Harmony Books. Students can purchase tickets in the NU Dance Room or at the Student Store. Doors open 30 minutes prior to show time. For information, contact Courtney Wadman at 530-273-4431, ext, 2103, or cwadman@njuhsd.com.
