Fresno State’s University Dance Theatre (UDT) is proud to present “On the Edge” their student-created dance performance. “On the Edge” will run November 21 – 23 in the Lab School 101 Theatre on the campus of Fresno State.
This UDT performance contains numerous dances created by Fresno State students ranging from contemporary, modern, lyrical, K-pop, and hip hop. From the dancers performing to the choreography and the production aspects of the concert, everything is student-generated with the assistance of Kenneth Balint, professor of Dance at Fresno State, and instructor of UDT.
Every semester University Dance Theatre brings a vast array of new dance ideas to the Lab School 101 Theatre. Joining UDT in the concert will be special guests Zachary Segovia of the Contemporary Dance Ensemble and Dulce Flores, former member of CDE, and soon to graduate dance major. Fresno State graduates Sahar Das and AJ Luquesta also contribute with original choreography.
“University Dance Theatre is a course that engages a high level of collaboration, dialogue, and discovery. Year after year, the group continues to bring a rich dance tradition of creativity and community to California State University, Fresno,” states Kenneth Balint, professor of Dance at Fresno State.
By attending the performances, audience members support dancers attending Fresno State as well as the performing arts community in Fresno. With the support of the community, dancers are motivated to pursue the art of dance and continue training.
Performances are November 21 – 23, 2019, at 8:00 p.m. and November 23 at 2:00 p.m. in the Lab School 101 Theatre.
