UNC Asheville’s Dance Program will host its 15th annual benefit performance, “Everybody Can-Can,” at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 9, in UNC Asheville’s Lipinsky Auditorium.
The evening will feature premiere performances showcasing the rich variety of dance at UNC Asheville in technique, composition and repertory. More than 70 dancers from the university and community will perform in many genres, including contemporary, Middle Eastern, ballet, and jazz.
Among the highlights will be a jazz piece created by recent UNC Asheville graduate Rabia Foreman, and a modern dance work by Cornelius Heard, a graduate of the UNC School of the Arts. The program will also feature collaboration with students from UNC Asheville’s New Media Department, adding fresh aesthetics and new technologies. The performance is suitable for all ages.
Admission at the door is $5 or four cans of food. All canned goods will be donated to MANNA FoodBank and cash proceeds will benefit UNC Asheville’s Dance Program. For more information, call Connie Schrader, UNC Asheville Health and Wellness Department lecturer, at 828/232-5652.
