NATCHITOCHES – The NSU Dance Company will present “Modern in Motion IX” Oct. 14-16 in the Alumni Plaza adjacent to the A.A. Fredericks Auditorium. Performance times are 6 p.m. with a 1 p.m. show on Oct. 16. Admission is free but donations will be accepted.
Choreography is by Brett Alan Garfinkel, Kirstin Riehl and Rebecca Morgan. Styles will include modern, contemporary ballet and tap.
“The Alumni Plaza was chosen because it is a place that we all see several times a day and we wanted to explore this location with a different lens,” said Garfinkel, chair of the Department of Theatre and Dance and an associate professor of dance. “Being able to see the space as a performance venue has allowed us to appreciate the space more than usual.”
