Alabama Repertory Dance Theatre’s spring concert this week

The Alabama Repertory Dance Theatre’s spring concert will be Wednesday through Saturday in the Morgan
Hall Auditorium on the University of Alabama campus.

The group is a pre-professional dance company composed of dance students at UA, performing works
choreographed by faculty members and guest choreographers once each semester.

The spring concert includes seven faculty works divided into two acts. The first is a restaging of “Paquita” by
faculty member Rita Snyder. Second is a modern duet by Sarah M. Barry featuring six cylindrical metal
sculptures by UA art faculty member Craig Wedderspoon. Closing the first act is an all-male contemporary
large group piece choreographed by Cornelius Carter.

Opening the second act is a group modern dance work choreographed by Rebecca Salzer. The music,
composed by Amir Zaheri, will play through the cellphones of dancers on stage, and audience members are
encouraged to play along through their own phones by visiting a link provided in the program. The fifth in
the show is a large-group contemporary ballet choreographed by Lawrence Jackson. A ballet duet between a
soldier and nurse, choreographed by Qianping Guo, follows.

Closing the show is an all-female musical theater jazz piece choreographed by Stacy Alley.
Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, 5:30 p.m. Friday and 2 p.m. Saturday. Tickets
are $20 for adults, $17 for seniors and UA faculty and staff, and $14 for students and children. Visit
