Park City High’s dance program will feature iconic music of the past century
at its upcoming spring concert “Iconic.” The performances begin at 7
p.m. at the Eccles Center.
Performers are students in grades 9-12 from the Dance Company, Dance Company 2, and Dance 2/3 classes. The concert will feature original choreography by students, as well as professional works by guest
choreographers and company director Ashley Mott.
Members of Dance Company chose this year’s concert theme. “They wanted to work with choreographing original work inspired by iconic music,” said Mott. “Music choices range from Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald to the Beatles, Michael Jackson, and Prince.
The selections represent many genres and styles of dance, including contemporary, modern, jazz, hip-hop, and AfroBeats (a stylized form of African dance). Approximately 50 students will be performing, and another half dozen are involved behind the scenes of the production as members of the technical crew, running the lights, sound, and video.
Tickets are $6 if purchased in advance (from any performing dance student), or $8 at the door. All proceeds from the event directly benefit the dance company and dance programs at the high school.
