Area SUNY Potsdam Student Choreographers Present Original Works

POTSDAM, NY – The Department of Theatre and Dance at SUNY Potsdam will present performances of original dance works by student choreographers from Dec. 6 to Dec. 8 on campus. Fourteen SUNY Potsdam students who are majoring or minoring in dance have created 20 dance works for the concert, which is entitled “Kaleidoscopic.”

The student performers and choreographers include:

Meagan Halstead of Fulton
Michael Remington of Phoenix

The pieces run from the technically challenging to the thematically intriguing, from the highly kinetic to abstractly sculptural, and from laugh-out-loud comedic to highly dramatic. Stylistically, everything from jazz to ballet and contemporary to tap dance is represented.

Performances of Concert A will be presented on Dec. 6 at 7:30 p.m. and Dec. 7 at 2 p.m., and Concert B will be offered on Dec. 7 at 7:30 p.m. and on Dec. 8 at 2 p.m.

All performances will be offered in the Dunn Hall Dance Theater. Doors will open 30 minutes before each performance. Tickets are free for SUNY Potsdam students with ID and $5 for general admission.

Tickets will be available at the door one hour before each performance. For more information, please call the Department of Theatre and Dance at (315) 267-2556.
