The SUU Ballroom Dance Company is in final preparations for its spring concert, “Let the Good Times Roll,” the culmination of everything the students have learned throughout the year. Performances will be held in the Auditorium Theatre on April 15 and 16 beginning at 7:30 p.m. Three performance ensembles — the beginning team, the intermediate team, and the touring team — will take the stage with multiple numbers in the show.
Dancers have been rehearsing since the beginning of the fall semester. Representing various dance styles, including the waltz, samba, cha-cha, tango, Lindy Hop, West Coast Swing, and more, each team will perform a full lineup of numbers that have been reworked or are new to the dancers.
“As an SUU dance department alumna and previous performer in the company, this show is especially meaningful to me,” said Beth Field, ballroom dance director. “It feels like a culmination of years of preparation and dedication to this incredible performing group.”
After its spring concert, the SUU Ballroom Dance Company will represent SUU on tour.
“Not only is this our last show on campus for the year, it is also a great preparation for the Tour Team’s performance tour to San Juan, Puerto Rico this May,” said Field. “The team will perform for local dignitaries, a children’s hospital, an art museum, and at several community events.”
Tickets are $10 for adults and $6 for SUU faculty, staff, and students. Children ages 6 and under enter at no charge. They can be purchased from any ballroom dance company member, at the door, or online at suu.edu/pva.
