The Salem Dance Ensemble presents its end of semester concert, “The Other Side of the Crowd”. Performances will take place in the new Sophia Gordon Center for Creative and Performing Arts on Saturday, December 16 at 7:30 pm and Sunday, December 17 at 2 pm.

The evening will include original choreography by faculty and students as well as a new work, “YES INDEED!” by world-renowned choreographer and dancer Bill Evans. It will feature students Samantha Aucello, Cameron Decas, Amanda Dragani and Micaela Plankey. Evans has been working with the Salem State dance department students since the start of the fall semester as an artist-in-residence.

According to department chair Meghan McLyman “We have been so fortunate to have Mr. Evans on campus this semester. He has led master classes in tap and modern dance and we are honored to have him set a new work on our students. Our dance program continues to build opportunities like this one for our students to work directly with iconic dance artists like Mr. Evans.”

Bill Evans is a Guggenheim Fellowship recipient who founded his Bill Evans Dance Company in 1975. He is noted for the creation of a modern dance technique that has influenced hundreds of dance teachers and dancers around the world for more than 30 years.

Tickets for concert are: $20 general/$15 non-SSU students over 18 and seniors/under 18 admitted free. Purchase online: salemstatetickets.com or by phone in advance at 978.542.6365.
