The Ballroom Dance Company at Brigham Young University will perform a pre-tour concert Saturday, May 22, at 7:30 p.m. in the Smith Fieldhouse on the BYU campus.

Tickets are $10 for reserved seating and $5 for general admission. They can be purchased at the Fine Arts Ticket Office at (801) 378-4322.

The concert will showcase the performances the company will perform during their European Tour May 28 through June 24.

Tour stops will include England, France, Spain and Belgium.

The concert will premiere new competition medleys with music arranged and recorded by Kurt Bestor, as well as the new competition medleys that will be used to compete in the British Open Championships.

Gary and Diana McDonald and Lee and Linda Wakefield choreographed parts of both pieces.
