“Discover Dance” in the Annual Dance Assembly this Tuesday, Oct. 27, at 11 a.m. in the Marriott Center at Brigham Young University. Five premiere BYU dance groups will be performing to help the audience discover the different faces of dance.

The performing groups include The Ballroom Dance Company, Living Legends, Theatre Ballet, The International Folk Dance Ensemble and Contemporary Dance Theatre. Each group will present choreography demonstrating how dance can be used to inspire, imagine, reflect, celebrate, remember or express.

“We hope our audience will discover how the art of dance can be used to ask personal questions and reflect on the things we value in life,” said associate professor, Ed Austin

Austin hopes students take a break from their studies to see the talent of their fellow student artists in a presentation that takes them on a journey through the world of dance and its diverse forms.

“Some might assume people dance for the same reasons, but that’s not necessarily true,” Austin said. “The pieces in this program have each been choreographed with different intent, and in some cases, for different reasons.”

President Worthen will provide a live introduction and Rodger Sorensen, an associate professor of theatre, has recorded a narration for the program. The assembly is free and open to all who are interested in experiencing the talent of these BYU performing groups.
