Governors State University students showcase their versatility and knowledge of various dance disciplines in an upcoming annual dance festival. Celebrate dance inspired by the big screen at Dance to the Movies on March 8 at 7:30 p.m.

Director Megan Lindsay says, “The show features a wide range of dances inspired by a variety of movie genres: comedy, musical, drama, action, suspense, Disney, and dance films such as Drumline, and Flashdance. It is quite a dynamic range of choreography inspired by movies made between 1933 (42nd Street) to 2016.”

Patrons will enjoy stunning choreography by Lindsay and featured work from GSU student dance company dancers: Izy Hollingsworth, Tyra Barnes, Autumn Price, Shanice “Tutu” Wright, Nia Wright, Tianna Smith, Courtney Heiskell, Dominique Adams, M’lyssa Bauske, Jas Garner, Kiana Turner.

A guest performance by Fatal Dance will also be featured. The movies that the students picked for inspiration include: Austin Power: International Man of Mystery, Footloose, Moana, Men in Black, and more! They will also do a re-staging of the “Cell Block Tango” from the movie Chicago.

The performance is open to the public. Tickets are $15 and $10 for students with valid I.D. at the box office. Contact the box office at CenterTickets.net or call 708-235-2222.

Dance to the Movies is produced by GSU’s Theatre and Performance Studies (T.A.P.S) program. GSU’s T.A.P.S. bachelor’s degree is the only degree combining the two disciplines at a public state university in Illinois. For information on the GSU Dance Company, contact Megan Lindsay at [email protected].

The box office is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and two hours prior to performances (Thursdays the box office is open until 6 p.m.). Performances at Center for Performing Arts are partially supported by funding from Illinois Arts Council, a state agency.

Governors State University is located at 1 University Parkway in University Park.
