UNC Performing Arts Series Continues April 3 with Unique Dance Performance

The University of Northern Colorado's College of Performing and Visual Arts' 2013-14 Performing Arts Series, which features students from the School of Theatre Arts and Dance, shifts gears April 3-5 with Bring on the Men: Dance 2014, an evening of dance performance choreographed by male choreographers. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. in Langworthy Theatre in Frasier Hall on the UNC campus.

Directed by UNC Professor of Dance Monte Black, Bring on the Men aims to show the audience a different side of dance, one that reveals that what seems a feminine art form is actually full of testosterone and not just by its inherent athleticism.

The series concludes with Jackie and Me (comedy, rated G): April 24-26 at 7:30 p.m. and April 27 at 2 p.m. in Langworthy Theatre

For performance descriptions and ticket information, visit the Performing Arts Series website.
