Young Dancer Festival Set for Jan. 24

UALR’s Department of Theatre Arts and Dance will showcase up-and-coming dancers from across the region at the Young Dancers’ Festival in January.

The two-day festival was created to bring young dancers together to dance side-by-side in master classes. The festival will culminate in a concert performance at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 24, showcasing the choreographic work of various area dance schools. The performance in the University Theatre is free and open to the public.

As part of the effort to create a stronger dance community in Arkansas, young dancers, ages 13 to 19, from around the region have been invited to come together for a weekend celebrating the art of dance.

The dancers will spend Saturday taking master classes in various dance styles and preparing their works for a performance Sunday on the stage of UALR’s University Theatre when the public will get to see the students of dance perform in various styles of dance works.
