Director of Communications

Northwestern State Theatre and Dance will present “Dance Discovery” April 6-8 in the A.A. Fredericks Auditorium. Performance time is 7:30 p.m. each evening with a 2 p.m. matinee on April 8. Tickets are $15 and $12 for senior citizens. Northwestern State, BPCC@NSU and Louisiana School for Math, Science and the Arts students are admitted free with a current student I.D. “Dance Discovery” features the work of choreographers Kirstin Riehl, Brett Alan Garfinkel and Rebecca Morgan.

“The performances of ‘Dance Discovery’ will allow us to showcase the versatility of our dancers,” said Garfinkel. “There will be a little something for everyone as we will present many difference genres of dance including contemporary, tap and musical theatre.”

Garfinkel’s work will include “The Secret,” a trio in which each character is holding something back from each other; “Growing Pains,” a duet that explores the relationships between a family of brothers and “Factory,” a group piece set in the New York City club scene.

Riehl’s work will include “Hidden Forces,” a piece that examines how the things that happen in our lives impact ourselves and those around us and a solo work featuring Logan Terrell that represents phases of developments and cycles, highlighting his strengths as a dancer.

Morgan’s pieces are “Anything Goes,” a musical theatre group tap piece from the show “Anything Goes,” “Nefelibata,” a contemporary work performed by a group of five women to the song “Both Sides Now” by Joni Mitchell and a duet “Anam Cara,” a duet by Charles Anderson Jr. and Rachel Taylor to the song “J’ai Deux Amours” sung by Madeline Peryroux.
