“Elements of Style” One Night Only

8 p.m. Saturday, March 20 in the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts

“Elements of Style 2010” is the Santa Fe College Dance department’s annual performance and showcases Dance Theatre of Santa Fe in two semesters of dances. This year, the performance will also introduce Rodney Brown, the new assistant professor and artistic director of Dance.

Elements 2010 boasts four of Brown’s new works including “Odd Bird merrikore,” which features a live accompaniment of jazz great Keith Jarrett’s “somewhere over the rainbow,” and “summertime,” a work for men that recently represented Santa Fe College at American College Dance Festival Association’s regional dance concert in Murfreesboro, Tenn. (in photo).

“summertime” was selected as one of the top dances for the festival’s gala performance — from among works performed by dance departments at 45 colleges — and is the running for a national performance at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., in April. 

Other choreographers include Fine Arts Chair Alora Haynes, Sonia Calero, SF alumni, and New York choreographer Brian Brooks.

“Elements of Style 2010” is an evening of strong, diverse dance. The evening has range and depth, from Hip Hop to classical to comedy — there is something for everyone.

Tickets are $12 at the door; free for SF students. For more information contact Rodney Brown at 352-395-5674.
