Ballroom Dance Concert will “Let the Good Times Roll”As the school year comes to a close, the Southern Utah University Ballroom Dance Company puts the finishing touches on their spring concert “Let the Good Times Roll”. This concert is a finale of all the students have learned throughout the year. Performances will be held in the Auditorium Theatre on April 15 and 16 beginning at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults, $6 for SUU faculty, staff, and students, and free for children ages 6 and under. They can be purchased from any ballroom dance company member, at the door, or online at www.suu.edu/pva.

Three performance ensembles, ranging from beginning team, intermediate team, and touring team, will take the stage with multiple numbers in the show. Dancers have been perfecting their skills from the start of fall semester. Representing various dance styles, including the Waltz, Samba, Cha Cha, Tango, Lindy Hop, West Coast Swing, and more, each team will perform a full lineup of numbers that have been reworked or are new to the dancers.

Beth Field, Ballroom Dance Director, said, “As an SUU Dance Department Alumna and previous performer in the company, this show is especially meaningful to me. It feels like a culmination of years of preparation and dedication to this incredible performing group.”

After their spring concert, the SUU Ballroom Dance Company will represent SUU on tour. Field explains, “Not only is this our last show on campus for the year, it is also a great preparation for the Tour Team’s performance tour to San Juan, Puerto Rico this May.” The team will perform for local dignitaries, a children’s hospital, an art museum, and at several community events.
