"Divine Divas" dances through CSUS

California State University, Sacramento's Dale Scholl Dance/Art opens its 20th season with "Divine Divas," a tribute to legendary women from the music industry on Thursday, Nov. 1. Artists - such as Aretha Franklin, Tina Tuner and Madonna - that have inspired legions of people from all walks of life stirred Scholl into creating new choreography for the show.

The first of Scholl's new works included in the program is entitled "Chain of Fools," and features Turner's "What's Love Got to do With It?" and "I Can't Stand the Rain," as well as Franklin's "Respect." These songs set the mood for a passionate dance piece with polished choreography. Scholl's second contribution to the show is called "Crazy," a whimsical tribute to Pasty Cline.

On the other end of the musical spectrum, choreographer Eric Vianelle found inspiration for new dance pieces in the rock music of Annie Lennox's "Little Bird" and "Cold." The program is completed by Joseph Candelaria's dance set to pop icon Madonna's "Express Yourself."

"Divine Divas" runs at 8 p.m., Nov. 1 through Nov. 17 in the CSUS Dancespace in Solano Hall. Tickets are $8 - 15 and are available at the CSUS Ticket Office at (916) 278-4323.

Media assistance is available by contacting the CSUS public affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
