The UGA Department of Dance’s CORE Concert Dance Company of Contemporary and Aerial Dance will perform “Taking Flight” as its annual season show at the UGA New Dance Theatre. The 65-minute program will feature UGA dance students and guest artists from around the world who will demonstrate their artistic mastery of movement on bungee, triple trapeze, lyra, silks and cyr—all enhanced with music, film and lighting effects. This dynamic performance seeks to “explore an aeronautical journey pushing the boundaries of dance into flight.” At the very least, this should be a unique opportunity to see some serious Cirque du Soleil-style moves. Tickets ($15, $10 [UGA students, seniors]) be purchased at the Tate Student Center, by calling 706-542-8579, online at pac.uga.edu or at the door beginning at 7 p.m. the evening of the performance.
