Dance Program Invites Community to Spring Dance ShowcaseLone Star College-Kingwood’s Student Dance Company will present its spring Student Dance Showcase on April 11 at 7:30 p.m.

Held in the Fitness and Training Center room 101, the performances are a culmination of the semester’s work by LSC-Kingwood students. This is the second performance under the college’s new Student Dance Company. The new company supports students in the creation and development of original choreography and allows for additional performance opportunities.

“We invite the audience to our spring event to showcase the students’ improvement as well as their creative voices,” said Kalee Irwin, dance company manager.

The LSC-Kingwood Student Dance Company was created to equip students with hands-on experience of working for a small company. Students choreograph, rehearse, and refine their works with the desired goal of performing in the concert at the end of each semester. Student members may be budding choreographers, performers, or both in a variety of dance idioms.

The Spring Showcase includes over 12 works including body movement studies, class derived solos, and small to large group works of various styles and topics.

Irwin describes her work’s intention as a study of movement through breath and becoming connected as a dancer within one’s self. Other creative topics include a look at the cause and effects of schizophrenia as well as exploring the connection that past, present and future relationships may have on individuals by ensemble member Kathy Delgado.

General admission tickets for the Student Dance Showcase are $5 and will be available at the door. For additional information contact Amy Llanes, dance faculty member at Amy.E.Llanes@leonstar.edu.
