EIU Dancers Present "Timeless"

Mar-22-2016

The EIU Dancers will showcase and revive dance and music through the decades during "EIU Dancers:  Timeless."  The performance will highlight student and guest choreographers under the direction of Amanda Baima and assistant director Samantha Saunders.  General admission tickets are $10 and student tickets are $5, with performances at 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday, March 24 and 25, in the Doudna Fine Arts Center Theatre.

"EIU Dancers: Timeless" will include various genres of dance from the 1920s to the present that have been choreographed and rehearsed throughout the season. Audiences can expect to be transported to the era of the performance. “We expect our audience to feel like they are truly experiencing the time period that dancers are modeled after,” Baima said.

The EIU Dancers have been working since August to prepare for the show. “With the help of the Doudna Fine Arts Center, we are able to put on a great show with amazing lighting and special effects,” Baima added.

Tickets can be purchased at the Doudna Box office or online. The Box Office accepts cash, checks, credit cards and Panther cards. For more information on the event, visit the Doudna Fine Arts Center's website http://www.eiu.edu/doudna/events.
