Press release from: Adelphi University

Adelphi University Department of Dance is proud to present its annual program, Spring Dance Adelphi. This year’s Spring Dance Adelphi will be a mixed program and will take place from May 2-4 and May 9-11, 2014 in the Olmsted Theatre in the Adelphi University Performing Arts Center (AUPAC), located at 1 South Ave, Garden City NY. Thirty-eight students will perform in five pieces from five different choreographers, with musical styles ranging from traditional Japanese music to the music of Ray Charles.

Spring Dance Adelphi is directed by Frank Augustyn, chair of the Department of Dance. Choreographers include Assistant Professor Orion Duckstein, Adjunct Professor Leda Meredith, and guest choreographers Takehiro Ueyama and Maurice Brandon Curry.

Mr. Ueyama is the founder of the TAKE Dance Company, which has often been praised for its distinct combination of athleticism and sensitivity.
