BYU dancEnsemble to present “Lifelines” Nov. 6-7

Brigham Young University’s Department of Dance will present the dancEnsemble’s fall concert, “Lifelines,” Friday and Saturday, Nov. 6-7, in the Dance Studio Theatre, 166 Richards Building.

Showings begin both nights at 7:30 p.m. with a matinee Saturday, Nov. 7, at 2 p.m. Tickets are $6 at the Fine Arts Ticket Office, (801) 422-4322 or online at byuarts.com.

This semester’s unique production will present works by both students and faculty. Unlike most performing companies at BYU, dancEnsemble provides students with experience in choreography and concert production.

“It is a wonderful opportunity for budding choreographers to learn and grow,” said company member Rebecca Downs, who noted that inspiration for the dances came from many sources.

Koryl Wadsworth’s piece, “All Clear,” was inspired from her observations of everyday situations. “I’ve noticed that the people I admire seem to live fuller and happier lives because they don’t let their little mistakes bring them down,” Wadsworth said.

Other dancers, like Roxanne DeBord, chose to work on a more abstract level, allowing texture, layers and the body itself to be her inspiration.

In addition to a variety of student works, three faculty pieces will be presented. Jiamin Huang, in collaboration with Xiaolong Miao, will present a quirky and innovative piece,“Evolution.” Robin Konie will also present her work “Nothing Up My Sleeve,” while director Pam Musil will present “Torrential Accumulations.”
