Description: Terpsichore is the Greek muse of dance and choral singing. Hilton Head Dance Theatre uses Terpsichore's name for their annual production dedicated to both classical and contemporary dance. Be prepared to be swept off your feet by this year’s selections!
The Dance Theatre's annual performance of classical and contemporary dance will open with "A Midsummer Night's Dream," staged by Karena Brock-Carlyle to the music of Felix Mendelssohn. Joel Johnson will be featured in the Flames of Paris, a variation he performed when he competed in the Youth America Grand Prix.
The middle portion of the performance will be dedicated to contemporary works beginning with a new ballet by Jamal Edwards. Titled "Rock Ballet II," it was inspired by the music of Prince, Michael Jackson, and Eurythmics. Jamal will also choreograph a new tap number for himself and Cassie Maurer. Topping off this portion of the evening will be Kathleen Watkins' staging of the iconic Fosse piece, "I Wanna Be A Dancin' Man."
The grande finale for the evening will be a re-staging of Karena Brock Carlyle's Gotcha Gottschalk set to the music of Louis Moreau Gottschalk.
