Penn State Altoona offers fall show at Ivyside Dance Ensemble

ALTOONA, Pa. — Penn State Altoona’s Ivyside Dance Ensemble will perform at 7:30 p.m. November 7 and 8 at the Misciagna Family Center for Performing Arts. Tickets are $5 for Penn State Altoona students and $7 for general admission. Children under 12 are free.

This performance includes both new work and repertoire and features Project 44 Dance Artistic Director Gierre Godley. Based in New York, Project 44 Dance is an all-male troupe dedicated to showcasing the beauty of male artistry through the arts.

KT Huckabee, Professor of Integrative Arts, brings two new pieces to the stage for this performance that explores four of the “Effort” qualities identified by dance theorist Rudolf Laban.

Everett Perry-Johnson, director of the Ivyside Dance Ensemble, also offers two new pieces that examine the energy of metropolitan life and the unsettling truth of those captured and held captive.

Bethany Miller, part-time dance teacher and part-time LPC and licensed dance/movement therapist, offers the repertoire piece “Journey.” Through movement and manipulation of fabric, dancers explore the joy, obstacles and insights one may encounter in a personal quest for growth.

Tickets can be purchased at the box office, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday to Friday, and before and during all performances. For more information, call the Misciagna Family Center for Performing Arts at 814-949-5452.
