The UH Dance Ensemble will hit the Wortham stage Friday with its contemporary and modern choreography and energetic performances.

The School of Theatre and Dance will host Ensemble Dance Works at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Lyndall Finley Wortham Theatre.

The Ensemble was formed in 1992 and has offered dancers performance skills under the direction of Teresa Chapman.

“If you love to laugh or view aesthetically moving art, then Ensemble Dance Works is for you,” said dance junior Alma White.

Multiple choreographers collaborated on the production.

“We have dances that range from full-hearted and funny to dramatic and meaningful,” said dance senior Michelle Largent. “The show is full of amazing actors, dancers and choreographers.”

Offering a variety of personal messages, the dances are expected to be conveyed in performance, including a piece from theatre and dance lecturer Melissa Noble inspired by Saint Hildegard von Bingen’s life.

“UH students can expect to leave the performance knowing a bit more about what dance is and what the dance department at UH is producing creatively,” Noble said.

Tickets are $20 for general admission and $10 for students and seniors.
