Nevada Union’s ‘Choreography Showcase’ coming in February

Nevada Union High School’s Theatrical Dance Program presents the 15th annual Student Choreography Showcase at 7 p.m. Feb. 4 and 5 and again at 2 p.m. Feb. 6 at the Don Baggett Theatre, located on the NU campus at 11761 Ridge Road, Grass Valley.

This year’s Showcase includes the theme “Making Connections,” an innovative lecture/demonstration of student works inspired by history, science, poetry, visual arts, and more. Eleven advanced dancers have created original pieces in a variety of dance styles, performed by the intermediate and advanced dancers in the department. These student choreographers submitted detailed proposals at the start of the school year, describing how their dance would reflect the show’s theme of making connections between dance and another subject. They began rehearsals at the start of the school year, dedicating several weekends to teach and stage their works on a cast of their peers.

Before presenting each piece, the choreographers describe their inspiration and choreographic processes, the challenges they overcame, and their artistic vision for how the movement, costuming, and lighting designs they have created reflect the theme of “Making Connections.”

Tickets are $10, $12, and $15, depending on seating location. All seating is reserved. Tickets can be purchased online at Tickets can also be purchased in the Don Baggett Theater lobby from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Feb. 1, 2 and 3, and on show nights at the box office. The box office opens at 5:30 p.m. For additional information, contact the Nevada Union Dance Department at 530-273-4431 ext. 2103.
