NACOGDOCHES, Texas — Stephen F. Austin State University’s dance program will livestream senior choreographic works during its production of “Danceworks: The Effect” at 7 p.m. Nov. 12-13 and 3 p.m. Nov. 14.
Unlike past years, only the performers’ immediate family members may attend the concerts in person in the HPE Complex, Room 201, because of COVID-19 guidelines.
Students, faculty and staff, and the public can watch online by making a donation in any amount at sfasu.edu/danceworks. Donors will receive an email the week of the performances containing the livestream link.
“Normally, the revenue we generate from ticket sales funds the next Danceworks performance,” said Heather Samuelson, dance program co-coordinator and assistant professor in SFA’s Department of Kinesiology and Health Science. “Because in-person attendance is greatly limited this year, we’re asking the public to help us support the future growth and success of these students.”
Danceworks serves as the capstone course for dance seniors and features tap, jazz, and modern and contemporary dance. Ten choreographic works will be performed.
“The production teaches students a variety of skills other than choreography,” Samuelson said. “Students learn how to cast a show, promote a performance, design lighting, select costumes and edit music.”
