Cadlwell Fine Arts Presents Dance Company

2005. 10. 03.

CALDWELL (Idaho)- Enjoy an evening of music and movement during the Caldwell Fine Arts presentation of the Repertory Dance Company on Tuesday, October 4 at 7:30 p.m.

Repertory Dance Theatre delivers a thought provoking, witty, dazzling, breathtaking program of contemporary dance. The program includes Duets (1998) by Zvi Gotheiner who uses music inspired by native Brazilian culture, and Dance With Two Army Blankets (1992) by choreographers Shapiro and Smith who highlight close coordination as dancers leap, catapult, catch, and soar with the aid of two blankets. Here We Are (2004) by Scott Rink uses two narrators to share the thoughts and feelings of newlyweds. It is witty and full of fun. In World Dance (2005), choreographer Kathryn Posin blends global dance styles where ballet meets Bali and motorcyclists do the tango. Laura Dean's Sky Light (1982) is a masterpiece. It was also a stunning finish to the 1991 CFA performance. For more information, go to www.RDTutah.com.

Artistic Director Linda C. Smith is a native of Utah and began her career at the age of four with Virginia Tanner's Children's Dance Theatre. She was a founding member of RDT and became artistic director in 1983. Her performing experience spans over 90 works and 1000 visits at schools. Linda is an Adjunct Professor at the University of Utah. The company dancers have Bachelor or Masters Degrees in modern dance or ballet from the University of Utah, BYU, Ohio University, and the University of Illinois.

The performance will take place in Jewett Auditorium on the Albertson College of Idaho campus. Ticket prices are $12-16 adult: $4 student discount. Tickets may be purchase at the door, or by calling 459-3405 or 459-5783, or order on web site: www.caldwellfinearts.org

Members of the Canyon Dance Academy Junior and Senior Dance Corps will present a short performance at 7:20 before the start of the Repertory Dance Theatre. These girls were the first performers for the Indian Creek Festival Main Stage entertainment on September 17, but were rained out. This gives the audience and the dancers an opportunity to share their talent.

The Repertory Dance Theatre is funded in part by the Western States Arts Federation, the National Endowment for the Arts and the Idaho Commission on the Arts. An ArtsPowered Learning grant from the ICA, the Whittenberger Foundation, and US Bancorp Foundation also help support the school programs.
