BYU Dancers' Company Jan. 29-31 concerts to honor founder Dee Winterton

The Dancers’ Company will give an eclectic and energetic performance at “Dance in Concert” in honor of the group’s founder and former Brigham Young University faculty member Dee R. Winterton at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, Jan. 29-31, in the Pardoe Theatre, Harris Fine Arts Center.

A matinee performance will be held Saturday, Jan. 31, at 2 p.m. Tickets are $12 and can be purchased online at www.byuarts.com, by phone at (801) 422-4322 or in person at the Harris Fine Arts Center Ticket Office.

The concert will feature “Glad Tidings,” a work from Winterton’s own “Visual Messiah.” Although it is the only work at “Dance in Concert” by Winterton, the entire program reflects his artistic philosophy of “celebrating the best in man,” according to artistic director and dance faculty member Pat Debenham.

Also featured on the program is “Under the Tundra,” a new work by Debenham that creates a richly textured fantasy world with light, sound and motion. “Four Shakespearean Women” by Department of Dance faculty member Caroline Prohosky will explore four of Shakespeare’s most recognizable women: Fiery Kate, Devoted Desdemona, Fragile Ophelia and Hopeful Juliet.

“Dance in Concert” will also include works by guest choreographers Carl Flink, Amy Markgraf Jacobson and Ashley Hanna that explore themes of enduring relationships and supporting others on life’s journey.

Versatile, dynamic and entertaining, the Dancers’ Company has represented BYU across the globe since 1975. This small group of dancers has presented full artist-in-residency programs throughout the world, including major concerts, demonstrations and classes for all ages. Whether performing in a major theater in Argentina or teaching young children in Turkey, these articulate performers present dance as art that can entertain and educate.
