Winter dance concert set for Dec. 2-3 at Birmingham-Southern College
BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—Fun-filled, classic, and contemporary Christmas tunes will be played out in dance at Birmingham-Southern’s annual holiday show “A Taste of the Season."
This popular performance by students in BSC’s dance program will be held Friday, Dec. 2, and Saturday, Dec. 3, at 7:30 p.m. on the mainstage of the College Theatre.
Approximately 18 female students and two male students will dazzle and entertain with holiday favorites such as “O Come, O Come, Emanuel”; “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch”; and many more, including an excerpt from “The Nutcracker.”
Jackie Lockhart, BSC adjunct professor of dance and coordinator of the BSC dance program, is overseeing the production. She is a 1985 graduate of Birmingham-Southern.
All the Christmas tunes and dance numbers and scenes are student-choreographed and student-directed. The production also will feature a variety of dance styles, including ballet, modern, jazz, and hip hop, with each piece being wholly distinct and unique. One piece will transport the audience back to the 1950s with a USO (United Service Organizations) feel and Bing Crosby crooning in the background.
The show runs about one hour, with a 15-minute intermission. The event is open to the public and admission is free on a first come basis.
“We’re so excited to usher in the holidays by ‘dancing our hearts out,’” said Catherine Clubb-Brown, a sophomore English major from Memphis. “We just want to bring joy to our BSC family and to the Greater Birmingham community.”
