Dance Happening to Showcase a “Traveling” Performance

Published: Oct 22, 2007
Dance Happening, a unique “traveling” student dance performance that takes place indoors and outdoors, is set to run Oct. 24-27 at 8 p.m. at The University of Tampa.

A crowd favorite at UT, the opening portion of the program will take place inside the UT Edison Building at 214 N. Blvd. and the remainder will take place on the Plant Hall East Verandah.

"The Dance Happening is simply one of the most unique and exciting performance events you'll experience on a university campus," said Susan Taylor Lennon, director of the UT Dance Program. "The range of work presented offers something for everyone."

Presented by the Department of Speech, Theatre, and Dance, the Student Dance Happening features popular music and the work of talented students from all sectors of the University community. Choreography features new work by 13 UT students and five alumni.

The UT Dance Team and the Black Student Union Dance Team also will perform. Dance styles will include hip hop, modern, tap, musical theater, lyrical and jazz, with more than 80 students participating.

Dance Happening productions occur in both fall and spring.

The performance is free, but seating in the Edison Building for the indoor portion of the program is limited. For more information, contact Susan Taylor Lennon at (813) 257-3745.
