College presents “Fall into Dance” concert

Andrea Vasquez -- November 15, 2013

 

HOUSTON – The San Jacinto College South Campus Dance Performing Arts Company (PAC) will present its “Fall into Dance” concert Nov. 21 and 22.

This year’s concert will feature the choreography of guest artist Dionne Noble of NobleMotion Dance. As fast-paced techno music by Christian Cherry and 2562 pulses away, the dancers hurdle, shake, and fling themselves through the space for an exhilarating ride of a dance. Other highlights include a site-specific work in the Marie Spence Flickinger Fine Arts atrium by adjunct faculty Rebekah Chappell, and additional choreography by faculty members Jamie Zahradnik of Rednerrus Feil Dance Company and Stephanie Henderson.

The San Jac Dance PAC is under the new direction of San Jacinto College dance professor Diane Cahill Bedford. “My goal is to continually provide our students and audiences with an opportunity to experience the work of dance professionals from around Houston and beyond,” said Bedford. “Our students are talented and growing in their experiences with every rehearsal, and they cannot wait to share their talents with the surrounding community,” she added. The concert will also include choreography by Bedford and students in the dance program.

“Fall into Dance” begins at 7:30 p.m., each night in the Marie Spence Flickinger Fine Arts Center on the San Jacinto College South Campus, located at 13735 Beamer Road in Houston. Admission is $5 for seniors and students with a student ID, and $10 general admission.

The Dance Guild, a student organization developed to support the efforts of the South Campus dance program, will also sell one-of-a-kind 2014 dance calendars, and will and raffle T-shirts to raise money for future performances, guest artists, and attendance at the annual American College Dance Festival.
