Spring 2015 Dance Concert - NIU - School of Theatre and Dance

Spring 2015 Dance Concert

Made possible in part by an NIU Foundation grant, the highlight of the Spring 2015 Dance Concert will be a special work set on NIU dance program students by choreographers from the prestigious Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, two of the most recognizable names in the world of modern dance.

Now in its 30th year, the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company was born out of an 11-year collaboration between Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane (1948-1988). During this time, they redefined the duet form and foreshadowed issues of identity, form and social commentary that would change the face of American dance. The Company has performed worldwide in over 200 cities in 40 countries on every major continent and is recognized as one of the most innovative and powerful forces in the dance-theatre world.

The dance concert will present many other facets of dance expression, including ballet and jazz, featuring current students, faculty, guest artists and alumni and will be produced with live music in collaboration with students from the NIU School of Music. The Spring 2015 Dance Concert showcases the versatility of the nationally recognized dance training program that has placed School of Theatre and Dance students in professional companies and venues throughout the United States since 1979.
