Eclectic ensemble dances through CSUS

Some people march to a different drummer… and some people dance. The third annual Dance Faculty Recital opens at 8 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 6 at California State University, Sacramento. Additional performances are at 8 p.m., Friday, Dec. 7 and Saturday, Dec. 8 in the University Theatre in Shasta Hall.

The program includes ballet, folkloric, modern, jazz and cultural dance forms and features choreography by CSUS professors Dale Scholl, Linda Goodrich, Carrie Pereira, Jose Borrego, Melissa Moore and Lisa Ross.

Scholl brings excerpts from her popular shows "Moved," "Altered States" and "Caliente!" Members of her professional company, Dale Scholl Dance/Art, will perform her pieces.

Goodrich's piece is a tribute to famed vocalist Nina Simone called "Nina's Love," and will be performed by members of Sacramento Black Art of Dance, a student organization at CSUS.

Borrego presents portions of "Dos Caras del Mestizo," a piece about the history between European conquistadors and the indigenous tribes of the North American continent. It will be performed by members of cultural dance organizations based on campus and in the community.

Ross will present two pieces, "An Intro into the World of Fosse," as well as her conceptualization of Jimi Hendrix's "The Star-Spangled Banner." CSUS students and professional dancers will perform both of her pieces, as well as new works by Pereira and Moore.

Tickets are $8 - 12 and are available at the CSUS Ticket Office at (916) 278-4323 or at at (916) 766-2277.
