Utah Valley University Department of Dance presents a winter concert performed by the Ballroom Dance Company, December 3, 4, 5 and 7 in the Ragan Theater. Since the Ballroom Dance Company’s October performance at the inauguration of President Matthew S. Holland, they have updated a large portion of the show and are looking forward to performing it for the general public. Scott Asbell, director of the company, said, “The Ballroom Dance Company is prepared to dazzle and excite audiences with ballroom dance of all styles and rhythms. With four World titles, you know the dancers are excellent, and with a complete two thirds major work-over of the show, it will be fresh and exciting.”
Tickets for the show can be purchased from Ballroom Dance team members, Campus Connection 801-863-8797, or at the door. Cost of the tickets is $10 per person. Curtains open at 7:30PM each night with seating beginning at 6:30PM. There will be a matinee performance on Saturday, December 5 at 2:00PM, with seating beginning at 1:00PM.
UVU’s Ballroom Dance Company competes and performs nationally and internationally, receiving numerous awards and honors. In May of 2010, the touring team will travel to Blackpool, England to compete in the prestigious Blackpool Dance Festival where they will compete against teams from all over the world. For the first time both UVU’s Ballroom Company and BYU’s Ballroom Dance Team will be in attendance at the festival during the same time.
