POCATELLO – Idaho State University’s Department of Theatre and Dance will present the annual ISU Dance Concert on Dec. 6, 7 and 8 at 7:30 p.m. in the Black Box Theatre at the Stephens Performing Arts Center.
The concert will feature works by guest artists Bill Evans, Brit Falcon, Kelli Brown and Sam Paytosh as well as ISU dance faculty members Sergiu Brindusa, Kathy Diehl and Lauralee Zimmerly. Guest dancers from The Dance Factory will join ISU dance students in showcasing contemporary dance, jazz, improvisation, dance theatre, Flamenco, contemporary ballet and more.
Program director Diehl is in her second year at ISU and notes that this is an exciting time for the dance program.
“This concert is a testament to our faculty who are regionally recognized for their teaching and artistic work as well as our group of talented, dedicated students,” Diehl said. “Through our commitment to excellence in the field of dance, we are not only providing opportunities for our students to grow as performers, choreographers, scholars and educators, but are also broadening the audience for dance on our campus and beyond.”
She said the Bistline Foundation, the ISU Cultural Events Committee and departmental funding helped to support several guest artist residencies and classes this past year.
“The funding is essential to our continued growth and we are so grateful for the support,” she said.
Tickets for all performances are available at isu.edu/tickets or (208) 282-3595. Ticket prices are $13 for the public, $8 for children, $12 for ISU faculty and staff and $5 for ISU students.
