Antoine Thomas, the director of the EIU Dancers, said the performance is a celebration of different genres of dance, allowing the dancers to showcase their range of talents.

"We look at exploring all types of dance, including jazz, lyrical, modern, ballet and hip-hop, and for the first time ever, we will be performing stomp and Bollywood pieces this year as well," Thomas said.

The performance will consist of 18 dance pieces, and the type of music featured will be as diverse as the types of dance represented, Thomas said.
