HOUSTON – The San Jacinto College South Campus fine arts department will present the annual Winter Works dance concert on Nov. 15 and 16.
Presented and performed by students in the San Jac Dance PAC, performances include choreography created by faculty, students, alumni, and guest artists. Featured performance, “hallelujah HALLELUJAH,” is choreographed by guest artist Linda Phenix. San Jacinto College dance program alumna, Alyssa Vinson Beach, will also feature her choreographed piece, “Shasholoza,” performed by the entire San Jac Dance PAC company. Current dance major, Ashley Cook, will feature her performance and choreography for the concert piece, “Exaggravated,” as well as additional pieces choreographed by dance majors Ty’Esha Lewis and Hannah Christmas. Music selections include works by Philip Glass, the Soweto Gospel Choir, and Yasmin Levy. Audience members will also enjoy a slideshow that captures the many facets of the San Jacinto College dance program.
“It is a privilege for me to serve as the director of the San Jac Dance PAC,” said Dr. Patty Haselbarth, San Jacinto College dance professor. “This year the company has many new faces, and watching these young dancers grow into beautiful and expressive performers is truly a joy to see. The concert offers a variety of works that span from athletic and quirky, to the struggles of enduring loss and moving forward in life. The concert promises to be an enjoyable evening packed with high energy and touching moments.”
Winter Works runs Nov. 15 and 16, at 7:30 pm with a reception following each performance. All performances will be held in the Proscenium Theatre in the Marie Spence Flickinger Fine Arts Center on the South Campus located at 13735 Beamer Road in Houston. Admission is $3.00.
