HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The following is a news release from The University of Southern Mississippi

The University of Southern Mississippi’s Department of Dance will present its annual fall concert the weekend of Nov. 10. Performances by the Repertory Dance Company are set for Nov. 10, 11 and 12 at 7:30 p.m. A matinee performance is scheduled on Nov. 13 at 2 p.m. and a second matinee performance was just announced for Nov. 12 at 2 p.m.

Due to maintenance in the Mannoni Performing Art Center, the dance concerts have been moved to Studio 115 in the Theatre and Dance Building. Tickets will be sold at the door; $12 general admission; $6 students; $10 faculty/staff/military.

Department of Dance chair Stacy Reischman Fletcher reports that the dancers are excited to share their work, despite having to relocate the production. “The addition of an extra matinee on Saturday has brightened the spirits of these students who really deserve every opportunity to show their work—for some, their culminating creative projects. The weekend was spent setting the lights for the dances and running the entire show, and it seems that we are definitely on our way to opening night.”

All dancers performing in the concert are members of the Repertory Dance Company. All dance majors and minors are required to audition to join the company, but only those exhibiting profound dance technique are accepted. Repertory Dance Company helps these students gain insight into the standards of professional dance to help prepare them for careers in the field.

“Recent Repertory Dance Company alumni have taken their performing experiences from Southern Miss to the rest of the nation, and are currently dancing and producing work in the region, as well as New York City, Chicago, and the Los Angeles area,” Reischman Fletcher said.
