CANYON, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — West Texas A&M University released information on its fall dance concert which will take place from Nov. 16-19 in the Happy State Bank Studio Theatre inside the Sybil B. Harrington Fine Arts Complex.
The “Falling into Dance” concert, choreographed by senior dance students, will be staged at 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 16, 17, and 18, and staged at 2:30 p.m. on Nov. 19.
“We are thrilled to present an ensemble of dynamic choreography crafted by nine passionate dance artists,” said Crystal Bertrand, director of dance in the Sybil B. Harrington College of Fine Arts and Humanities. “Together they have composed a concert full of inspiring and innovative works that speak their own choreographic voices.”
The concert, officials noted, will feature solo and group performances that were choreographed by the following students:
