    (CEDAR CITY, Utah) - Dance is powerful, visceral, enlightening and engaging. On February 14 & 15 at 7:30pm, Cedar City will experience all this as it welcomes to the stage its premiere modern dance company, Shifting Velocity Dance Company. After performing in Brockport, NY, Clifton Forge, VA, St. George, and Salt Lake City last year, the company shares its artwork in its hometown. The event is at Southern Utah University’s Multipurpose Center, Studio 116.

    Those joining the homecoming will enjoy dances that are both thought-provoking and entertaining. Dancers explore themes with depth such as loss and self-love alongside lighthearted dances about onomatopoeia and janitor-maddening garbage monsters. Performing alongside Shifting Velocity are gifted dance companies and artists, including St. George Dance Company, Boizelle Dance, Kay Andersen, Paul Ocampo and Chien-Ying Wang. On the program: Equanimity, a light-hearted and lovely duet by SUU Dance Faculty Ocampo and Wang, Combative, an intense solo exploration of political and social schisms by SVDC artistic director Denise Purvis, Tap Talk, an a cappella tap solo by Andersen, and several more delightful dance works. In describing her dance, Oneness, choreographer Jennie Jones of St. George Dance Company states, “At times we are led by heart, mind, or body individually, and these three can even battle one with another in our thoughts. Oneness is the beautiful feeling of full commitment to a decision, a step which requires faith but is often followed by sweet confirmation.”

    Don’t miss this opportunity to revel in the beauty and artistry of modern dance. The concert is sure to entertain young and old alike. Tickets are $10/general, $5/student, $30/family of six, available only at the door. Couples attending on Friday night will receive $1 off per ticket. Seating is limited, so please arrive early. For more information about the concert or Shifting Velocity Dance Company, call Artistic Director Denise Purvis at 804-971-7657 or visit www.facebook.com/ShiftingVelocityDance.
