Art can be expressed in many different forms—painting, sculpture, architecture—and is the manifestation and method of communication of the artist’s expression. A professional dancer expresses art through body movement, putting in hundreds of hours of rigid exertion, spilling gallons of sweat through physical endurance, ache and soreness for the passion to perform on stage.
California State University, Northridge kinesiology graduate students and faculty will demonstrate their art next month with “Colaboratoria,” a dance concert on Tuesday, Nov. 15, at 8 p.m. and Wednesday, Nov. 16, at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. at the Plaza Del Sol Performance Hall.
“We are showcasing the great talents of our dancers and choreographers at CSUN,” said Paula Thomson, course coordinator and professor of kinesiology at CSUN. “Because they are graduate students and faculty members, the dancers and choreographers have matured and developed stronger and more sophisticated technique.”
Thomson said the dancers have honed their skill with years of experience. “The performance will showcase extraordinary accomplished body movements and diverse choreography,” she said.
Many of the performers have worked in professional dance companies and also on the television hit show, “So You Think You Can Dance.”
“Colaboratoria will explore a wider range of dance and style with exquisite dancers who are thrilled to entertain the audience,” said Thomson.
Faculty and staff can purchase tickets at the discounted rate of $15 at the Ticket Office in the University Student Union. For more information about tickets, call (818) 677-2488. For more information about the performance, contact Paula Thomson at (818) 677-7575 or email email@example.com.
