With performances ranging from contemporary dance and hip-hop to classical ballet and tap, the concert begins at 8 p.m. Saturday, April 27, and 2 p.m. Sunday, April 28, in Russell Auditorium on main campus.

Amelia Pelton, the university’s director of dance, will present two scenes from the ballet classic “Giselle,” originally choreographed during 1865.

“This concert is always a high point in our year,” said Pelton. “Our 50 dance minor students have been working hard all year on choreography for this performance, and our advanced lighting design students always provide fantastic lighting designs.”

Julie Mulvihill, dance instructor, also will present two contemporary pieces, while seven dance minor students will give performances as well.

Crossover Movements Arts from Atlanta is this year’s guest performance.

Presenting two pieces, Crossover Movement Arts is an evolving community of artists, who use movement, dance, visual arts, martial arts, text and sound to create performance art.

Admission: $12, general public; $8, senior citizens, Georgia College faculty/staff and non-Georgia College students; and $5, Georgia College students.

“We encourage the local and campus community to celebrate spring with us," Pelton said, "and enjoy a beautiful concert of dance."
