For Immediate Release:
Salt Lake Community College Dance Company has gathered community dancers to perform with them in their fall concert titled, Dreams and Illusions.  This concert features dances that are based on dreams, nightmares, illusions and delusions.  This is a multi-media performance with projected images and film coordinated with live performance. Community professionals, such as Ro Malaga, principal dancer in all the High School Musical movies and Maria Ivanova, of DF Dance Studio, and  numerous SLCC faculty  are presenting their choreography on Friday and Saturday, November 18 & 19, 2011, at 7:30 p.m. in the Grand Theater, 1575 South State Street.  Tickets are $8 or HALF PRICE if two non-perishable food items are brought in for the Utah Food Bank.  SLCC students and staff receive FREE admission with a current SLCC I.D. and 2 food items.   For tickets, call the Grand Theater box office: 957-3322.

Ro Malaga choreographed a hip-hop piece on the company, portraying a nightmarish hallucination.  Malaga is known as gifted hip-hop dancer and choreographer, working extensively with Bonnie Story and Kenny Ortega on many hip hop videos, films and live performances.  Maria Ivanova, of popular DF Salsa Dance, has set a saucy and sensual fantasy on the college dancers.  Rosie Banchero, SLCC adjunct faculty, is presenting an Afro-Jazz dance, highlighting the historical connection of the genres and featuring live drummers.  Local professional, Effren Corado is offering a high-energy contemporary piece and SLCC dance faculty, Erica Womack, has choreographed a modern piece based on the moments of half-sleep we all experience.  In addition to the community college dancers, SLCC dance adjunct faculty will be showcased in this performance, including Ashley Mott, Brian Benington, and tapper Debby Robertson.

About this performance, Tess Boone, company director and Associate Professor of Dance explained, “This concert has unusual variety and an engaging visual sense that will appeal to our digitally sophisticated audience.  It is a good example of our commitment to the convergence of technology and performing arts here at SLCC.”
