CORE teaser_0.jpgThis week, the dance department's CORE Concert Contemporary and Aerial Dance Company will present its annual 2017 season performance Feb. 22-25 at 8 p.m. at the New Dance Theatre in the dance building. The company will premiere "A World of Difference," a 65-minute nonstop aerial dance and multimedia performance:

The concert consists of juxtaposed abstract and dramatic sequences immersed in a surreal aural and visual landscape created through interactive film animation. Performers will exhibit technical aerial abilities on the silks, slings, lyra, trapeze and bungee. 

"We bring together UGA student artists who will demonstrate extraordinary aerial dance skills," said Bala Sarasvati, CORE artistic director and the Jane Willson Professor in the Arts. "These extremely committed artists bring a unique set of talents to the arts at UGA."

Tickets here. It remains crucial that a world-class university be the home of the highest levels of instruction and achievement in the arts and humanities, and the CORE concerts are an extraordinary example of the vitality of our dance program, as well as the students and faculty who make them great. Come out this week and experience an expansive performance for mind and spirit.
