We are so excited for Fall Arts Celebration: Dance, happening TONIGHT in Louis Armstrong Theatre in the Haas Center for Performing Arts! ๐Ÿ

Because we have SO MUCH ART to share with you, we are also using the Linn Maxwell Keller Black Box Theatre to house our Symphony Orchestra, who will be accompanying the dance performance live. ๐ŸŽป

Don't miss this spectacular event that combines dance, music, and technology to create one epic piece of art! ๐ŸŽ‰

Did you know? Because of how large and elaborate the GVSU Symphony Orchestra is, Dr. Henry Duitman will be conducting the orchestra in the Black Box Theater next to the actual Fall Arts Celebration: Dance venue.

The music will be fed into the dance venue in real-time, so the music is as good and "live" as it can be. Physical spaces will not stop us from celebrating #GVFallArts! ๐ŸŽ‰

Fall Arts Celebration: Dance is only a few days away!
