UNC Asheville's Dance Program will host its 16th annual benefit performance, "Everybody Can-Can," at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 8, in UNC Asheville's Lipinsky Auditorium.
The evening will feature premiere performances showcasing the rich variety of dance at UNC Asheville in technique, composition and repertory. More than 70 dancers from the university and community will perform in many genres, including contemporary, Middle Eastern, ballet, and jazz.
Among the highlights will be a dance created through collaboration by UNC Asheville Dance Program students and residents of Givens Estates Retirement Community. The program will also feature fresh aesthetics and new technologies from students in UNC Asheville's New Media Department, and UNC Asheville graduate Mary Labianca ’08 will premiere an experimental dance film choreographed in collaboration with the UNC Asheville dance students. The performance is suitable for all ages.
Admission at the door is $5 or four cans of food. All canned goods will be donated to MANNA FoodBank and cash proceeds will benefit UNC Asheville's Dance Program. For more information, call Connie Schrader, UNC Asheville Health and Wellness Department lecturer, at 828.232.5652.
