The University of Tampa will present its popular Dance Happening Oct. 25–27, featuring popular music and student dancers from across the University community. All performances begin at 8 p.m. in Falk Theatre, located at 428 W. Kennedy. Blvd.
Always a popular event on campus, the Dance Happening will feature more than 70 student dancers from all sectors of the University community presenting original choreography, many for the first time at UT.
“We had a large group of seniors graduate last year, so the majority of our choreographers are new to this experience,” said Susannah LeMarquand, dance program director, who organizes the annual event. “It is an exciting time for them, and we are looking forward to seeing their artistic voice come to life.”
Students have crafted new choreography in styles ranging from hip hop to contemporary, with themes covering a diverse range of issues, from sociopolitical commentary to a celebration of life’s victories.
“The Dance Happening is a transformative experience for many of our students, both choreographers and dancers,” said LeMarquand. “They work together to bring an abstract concept into reality on the stage. Magic happens!”
The Dance Happening is free and open to the public, but arrive early for the best seats. For more information, call (813) 257-3745.
