Brigham Young University’s Living Legends (formerly the Lamanite Generation) will perform a 90-minute celebration of Latin American, Native American and Polynesian song and dance in a concert at BYU's de Jong Concert Hall Thursday, March 25, at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets at $10 and $2 off with a BYU or student ID are available through the Fine Arts Ticket Office, (801) 378-4322 or at www.byu.edu/hfac.
Authentic choreography, intricate costumes and heart-pounding music bring to life the beauty of traditional cultures often forgotten in today’s modern world. Living Legends combines dynamic choreography of Native American choreographies with the color and vitality of the dances of Polynesian and Latin American dances.
From the graceful Hawaiian hula, to Mexican fiesta dances of celebration, to the excitement and beauty of a Native American powwow, this year’s Living Legends performance will reflect the cycle of civilization. The dances will portray the changing seasons experienced by ancient cultures, weaving together legends of the past with the reality of today.
Living Legends is directed by Janielle Christensen and originates in the School of Music. For more information about Living Legends, contact Performing Arts Management at (810) 422-3576.
