The event is a culmination of this semester’s creative work by choreographers and dancers from the school’s Dance Program and is the first concert to highlight work from students in the new dance major.

“As we enter the holiday season what better way to spice things up than with some exciting and creative choreography and performances by our students,” said Professor Yoav Kaddar, director of the Dance Program. “This ‘Celebration of Dance’ promises to put us all in the holiday spirit.”

The program will present a variety of styles of dance, from hip hop to jazz, and from more classical-influenced movement to contemporary. The concert will feature a variety of ensembles performing a collection of new works by WVU aspiring student choreographers.
