The Anderson University School of Music and the Dance Program will host the annual student-choreographed Fall Into Dance on Friday, Oct. 29 at 7:30 p.m. The performance will be in Reardon Auditorium and is open to the campus community and the general public.

fall-into-danceGeneral admission is $5; AU student admission is $2 or one canned-food item; free admission for children age 6 and under. Tickets may be purchased in advance through the School of Music office at (765) 641-4543, or at the door the evening of the performance.

This year’s program continues the tradition of celebrating student choreographers on the campus of Anderson University. Audience members will enjoy all forms and styles of dance as AU students present works ranging from hip hop, to modern, to classic jazz.

"Because of the rigorous audition process, students push the limits of their abilities, offering works that are innovative and inspiring," said Matthew Farmer, instructor of dance at AU. "This is the perfect event for any dance lover and a great way to enjoy the artistry, passion, and creativity of some of Anderson’s up-and-coming dance creators."

Fall into Dance marks the beginning of a new year of dance performances at Anderson University. Later productions will include the School of Music’s Christmas concert, Candles and Carols, and the faculty-choreographed concert Spring into Dance.
