‘Dance Fusion’ returns for encore

wPg14-DanceBy BRUCE HARDT

Pima Community College dancers will embrace contemporary and futuristic choreographic themes in Dance Fusion II performances on May 10-11.

Performances in the West Campus Center for the Arts Proscenium Theatre include Friday and Saturday shows at 7:30 p.m. and a Saturday matinee at 2 p.m.

Director Aurora Gonçalves-Shaner said students and faculty will perform ballet, jazz and modern dances to classical, contemporary and cultural music.

One number, for examples, fuses ballet with a Viennese waltz.

“This is a well-blended show with a variety of styles and vibrant costumes,” she said in a press release.

“I choreographed a piece in which the movement resembles the work mechanics of a clock,” Goncalves-Shaner said. “The piece, titled ‘Timelessness,’ represents the cycle of life and our never-ending progression.”

The choreography in another piece, “Syllabary,” takes its inspiration from the letters of the alphabet.

“The students and I collaborated and created movements to the shapes of the letters,” Gonçalves-Shaner said.

Gonçalves-Shaner will include a tribute to mothers with video and dancing. The program will also showcase several student works.

Tickets cost $10, with discounts available.
