A mix of fiery footwork and hot Latin jazz will be combined in the California State University, Sacramento faculty dance concert “Moves with Latin Grooves.” Featuring the combined choreography of five CSUS faculty members with music from the CSUS Latin Jazz Ensemble, the show will take the University Theatre stage at 8 p.m. for three nights, Dec. 11 to 13.

Professors Ed Brazo, Linda Goodrich, Lisa Ross and Dale Scholl, along with the show’s director, professor Paul Besaw, have created original dance numbers to the rhythms of Afro-Cuban, cha-cha, mambo, bolero and contemporary Latin rock. The twenty-piece CSUS Latin Jazz Ensemble, under the direction of faculty member Steve Roach, will drive the dancers with a vibrant Latin beat. Also included in the ensemble are four guest artists sitting in especially for the show.

The performances are latest in a series of biennial dance concerts presented by the University’s theatre and dance department. This year’s exciting show is sure to get the audience to its feet.

Tickets are $15 general, $13 for students and seniors, $12 for CSUS students and $9 for children 12 and younger and are available from the CSUS Ticket Office at (916) 278-4323 or Tickets.com. For media assistance, contact CSUS public affairs at (916) 278-6156.
