The Department of Dance at Hope College will present Dance 46, “Yan & Yang,” on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 28 and 29, and Thursday-Saturday, March 5-7, at 7:30 p.m. in the DeWitt Center main theatre.
Working within this year’s theme of “Yin & Yang,” the choreographers and designers investigate dualism, harmony and balance which are central to this ancient Chinese philosophy. Styles and influences include tap, jazz, dance-theater, house, West African, contemporary and contemporary ballet.
Dance 46 will feature choreography by guest artists Tracy Dunbar and Sharon Wong, and faculty members Jasmine Domfort, Matthew Farmer, Julie Powell and Angela Yetzke. Lighting and set designs have been created by Erik Alberg and costumes by Darlene K. Veenstra. A total of 50 Hope students will perform, with an additional 20-plus students working on technical and costume crews.
Tickets are $10 for regular admission, $7 for senior citizens and Hope faculty and staff, $5 for children age 13 to 18, and free for Hope students and children 12 and under.
