Great Leaps Dance Concert at UHH
The Spring 2013 Great Leaps Dance Concert takes place at the University of Hawaii at Hilo Performing Arts Center with two shows on Saturday at 2 p.m. and at 7:30 p.m. The shows offer an array of 11 different styles and moods in choreography, showcasing over 100 dancers.
Faculty choreographers Celeste Staton, Annie Bunker and Kea Kapahua will span the fields of modern technique, jazz dance entertainment and ballet. The advanced ballet class fuses the talents of the dancers in their choreographic contributions, including Irish step dancing, jazz and contemporary techniques threaded with classical ballet.
Guest choreographer Trina Nahm Mijo presents an ocean-inspired dance with the UH-Hilo Dance Ensemble. UH-Hilo seniors Scott Wuscher and Stephanie Whitehall have joined together to create a duet filled with passion and intricate partner work. Meika Wilde, also a UH-Hilo senior, performs her directed studies project. Dori Yamada, a longtime favorite dancer-choreographer on the UHHPAC stage, will present yet another innovative creation.
Tickets are $7 general, $5 seniors, students and children. This is an open-seating event. Call 974-7310 to order by phone.
