Dance Gala
Student dancers perform in Dance Gala 2002

November’s Dance Gala created opportunities for UI student dancers to perform at Hancher Auditorium with full technical and artistic support, including costume, scene, and lighting design. Crescendo: Dance Gala 2002, was the 21st Dance Gala and featured a total of 45 roles for dancers in five pieces, each choreographed by a different faculty member from the Department of Dance. At left is a scene from “Baque,” choreographed by Armando Duarte. The department chose the title, Crescendo, to reflect the growth of Dance Gala over the years from a modest production in a small space to a large-scale production on one of the nation’s major dance stages. Crescendo is also a fitting image for the growing intensity of creation, design, technical work, and rehearsal that climaxes in each season’s Dance Gala production–all accomplished in a little more than two months each autumn.
