Taking Steps: Balanchine, ballerinos and an encore by 10th Street Danceworks are highlights of the spring dance season

By Margaret Regan | Tucson Local Media

The students of UA Dance have a busy schedule this spring. Three concerts are in the works, all of them to be performed at Stevie Eller Dance Theatre on the UA campus. For details and tickets see

In the first show, On Stage with Liz Callaway and the UA Dance Ensemble, Callaway, a singer and actor on Broadway and in movies, belts out tunes to live music, and with the UA dancers dancing around her. The glittering performance will take up all of Act II.  Feb. 13-16.

Before Callaway gets going, the student dancers will take on jazz, modern and even tap works in Act I. Bon Appetit is a jazz piece by Professor Michael Williams. Unicorn, a modern dance, is the last dance composed by the late David Berkey, a respected choreographer and dancer who finished his career teacher at UA Dance. Hayley Meier presents a poetic work about love and longing. Expert tap dancers Brendan Kellam and Brianna Mull tap their way through a lively new work.

Choreography by current faculty shines in Spring Collection, April 22 to May 3; the student dancers will strut out to perform all genres of dance.
