Nevada Union dancers return to stage in ‘Fall for Dance’
Nevada Union High School’s Don Baggett Theatre is open again for three live dance performances this weekend: Fall for Dance features over 75 students performing on Friday, Nov. 19 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 20 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
The show length is an hour and a half, including a 10 minute intermission. There are 19 dances in a variety of styles, including hip hop, contemporary, jazz, lyrical and fusion. Students from the Theatrical Dance program, under the direction of Courtney Wadman and assistant director Toria Talbott, have worked hard over the past three months in after-school and weekend rehearsals with several professional guest choreographers.
Students from all levels of the program worked with Jordan Isadore, who who danced professionally with the premier international dance company Shen Wei Dance Arts, as well as Daisy Hang, a former professional cheerleader with the San Francisco 49ers, and Chris Jacobsen, who travels nationally with the highly-acclaimed dance convention Adrenaline Dance. The Advanced Dance class worked for over 30 hours during a four-day weekend with Seattle-based choreographer Jackson Knappen. The show also includes four dances from evening community enrichment classes, which are open to the public as a fundraiser for the NU dance program. The variety in styles and music will be enjoyable for audience members of all ages.

Tickets at the box office are cash/check only, payable to Nevada Union Theatrical Dance. The box office opens one hour before each performance.
