UGA Dance presents CORE Contemporary and Aerial Dance - which includes contemporary modern and aerial dance, post modern, interdisciplinary and technology-based works. Artistic director Bala Sarasvati and fourteen performers, will premiere Soul Searching for the 2020 UGA Department of Dance annual season. The evening’s nonstop multimedia show explores personal, cultural, political and environmental perceptions about current and immanent global issues. The aerial and contemporary dance performance is enhanced through a visual landscape incorporating projection mapping, animation and film. The company will perform on silks, slings, lyras, trapeze and bungee. Featured guest choreographer Mario Vircha will present Migrare, a multimedia dance and film that chronicles personal experiences while working with immigrant dance artists who fled countries in political crisis and migrated to other countries that have welcomed them.

"Soul Searching" runs in the New Dance Theatre from Thursday-Saturday, February 27-29 at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are available at https://pac.uga.edu/

This Spring, The Capital City Opera will present Gounod’s five-act opera, Roméo et Juliette, based upon the play by William Shakespeare. Roméo et Juliette tells the story of two rival families, the Capulets and Montagues, consumed with hatred for one another and yet somehow love emerges between two of the youngest members. Love does not triumph in this tale, only tragedy as revenge, murder and misunderstandings lead the lovers to die in each other’s arms. The opera will be set in 14th century Verona and performed in French with English supertitles.

Last night we hosted a special guest in rehearsal, Ms. Virginia Carver. ❤️ Ms. Carver had a successful dance career, dancing in Broadway musicals choreographed by Agnes de Mille and George Balanchine, and after began her career as an instructor of multiple styles. Her passion is ballet. Virginia began teaching at the UGA Department of Dance in 1971 where she helped establish it as a successful dance program. Having just celebrated her 90th birthday, we are excited to welcome her back to the department where she will restage a ballet piece for the upcoming Spring Dance Concert with the help of faulty members Dr. Lisa Fusillo and Colleen Barnes. We were delighted when she came to watch rehearsal last night and audition dancers for her piece! // stay tuned to see the final product in April 2020 🌟 @ UGA Dance
