ALTOONA, PA – The Penn State Altoona Ivyside Dance Ensemble will perform at 7:30 p.m. November 7-8 at the Misciagna Family Center for Performing Arts. Tickets are $ 5 for Penn State Altoona students and $ 7 for general admission. Children under 12 are free.
This performance includes both new work and repertoire and stars Gierre Godley, artistic director of Project 44 Dance. Based in New York City, Project 44 Dance is an all-male troupe dedicated to showcasing the beauty of male art through the arts.
Integrative Arts Teacher KT Huckabee presents two new pieces for this performance that explore four of the “Effort” qualities identified by dance theorist Rudolf Laban.
Everett Perry-Johnson, director of the Ivyside Dance Ensemble, also features two new pieces that examine the energy of metropolitan life and the unsettling truth of those taken and held captive.
Bethany Miller, part-time dance and part-time CPL instructor and registered dance / movement therapist, offers the repertoire piece “Journey”. Through the movement and manipulation of the fabric, the dancers explore the joy, barriers and ideas that can be encountered through a personal quest for growth.
Tickets can be purchased at the box office, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday to Friday, and before and during all performances. For more information, call the Misciagna Family Center for Performing Arts at 814-949-5452.
