The Spring Dance Concert will take place Thursday, Feb. 17, through Saturday, Feb. 19, at The University of Tampa, featuring popular music and student dancers from all parts of the University community.

The concert will feature choreography by UT faculty, guest choreographers from the Tampa Bay area and two UT dance alumnae.

“The Spring Dance Concert is always a fulfilling artistic experience for both the students and the audience. The depth of work that is created by all of the choreographers for the program will bring out a range of emotions from the audience, and often times the students are able to collaborate on each choreographer’s artistic process, which gives them a new sense of ownership to their movement," said Susannah LeMarquand, dance program director and assistant professor of dance. "It makes each piece all the more engaging to watch.”

In November, students had the opportunity to work with this year’s guest artist-in-residence, Jon Lehrer, founder and artistic director of the Jon Lehrer Dance Company, which is based in New York City. Lehrer held an audition and choreographed an original work for six UT dance majors and minors that will be performed at this year’s concert.

Dance styles include contemporary, jazz and dance theatre, and themes cover a multitude of diverse issues, mixed with some humor and large-scale production numbers. This semester, more than 40 students will participate in those collaborations.
