Published DatePLYMOUTH — A daylong celebration of dance with master classes taught by Plymouth State University (PSU) faculty and members of Boston's Urbanity Dance will bring together dancers of all ages and experience levels from across the region February 2 at the Silver Center for the Arts.
Dancers, companies and studios submitted choreography for adjudication and possible acceptance into the gala performance at 8 p.m.
The gala is an evening of creative and vibrant choreography featuring Urbanity Dance, a community of dancers living and working in Boston, finding creativity in the city, a "collegiate epicenter" where they say there is "a concentration of ideas and multidisciplinary arts that have the capacity to open and change minds." The performers are nurses, teachers, administrators, accountants, scientists, students, lawyers, writers and researchers whose common denominator is dance.
Urbanity's style is an eclectic fusion of ballet, jazz and modern dance performed by dancers who inspire each other with inventive ideas and choreographic collaboration and who use their formal training to push boundaries.
The evening gala, in the Hanaway Theatre, will begin with a dessert reception at 7:30 p.m. in the Silver Center lobby. Guests are invited (but not required) to wear formal attire.
Tickets are $11 for adults and seniors and $8 for youth at the Silver Center Box Office, (603) 535-2787 or (800) 779-3869. Tickets are also available online.
