eviDANCE is the premier concert of the BYU's most prestigious dance ensembles. The performance represents the full spectrum and diversity of movement styles in ballet, ballroom, contemporary and world dance forms.
This one-of-a-kind concert artistically reveals the Department of Dance's mission to "prepare articulate dance artists that integrate body, mind, and spirit."
"We hope you uncover new evidence to enhance your own conclusions about dance, music and the transformative power of all artistic expression," said Marilyn Berrett, chair of the BYU Dance Department.
Performances will exhibit dances from BYU's touring dance groups including the Ballroom Dance Company, Contemporary Dance Theatre, the International Folk Dance Ensemble, Living Legends and Theatre Ballet.
"This concert is going to be exceptionally exciting," commented Ed Austin, artistic director of the show. "Audience members will have the additional opportunity to experience the engagement between musicians and dancers while the performance unfolds on the stage."
Musical guests include Vocal Point and Mountain Strings.
