Dance Fever!: Odyssey's Spring Repertory Season, where the dancers stretch their artistic muscle and create new, exciting works. The first act will include 3 world premieres! A new tap piece by Veronica Yeager, a new balletic work called Andante by Derryl Yeager, set to the music of Mozart; and a new contemporary work by Former Company Member/Choreographer Christian Denice! The second act is Dance Fever! An expanded 40-minute tribute to the disco generation! Set to the music of the Bee Gees, this work is a crowd pleaser as they get to see their old favorites - Staying Alive, Emotion, More Than a Woman, Tragedy, How Deep is Your Love, and You Should Be Dancing. A fun and exuberant work that takes you back to the era of disco balls and white suits. Choreographed by Derryl Yeager, Allison Thornton, and Jessica Holker, this piece is a blast from the past. Deseret News said, "Odyssey Dance Theatre's Shut Up and Dance season only proves that it is a company to be taken seriously. Bravo!" Truly a dance lover's buffet of cutting edge choreography - this program will most assuredly have something for everyone!
March 7 and 8, 2013 - 7:30 p.m.
Romeo+Juliet: Back by popular demand for the fourth year in a row, see what the Deseret News said was, "…to die for!" A full-length work, based on the Shakespearean tale about star-crossed lovers, but in the Odyssey tradition: a hip-hop version! Choreographed by Odyssey Principal Eldon Johnson, along with sections by Ashleigh and Ryan Di Lello from "So You Think You Can Dance," Derryl Yeager and others, this is a unique and powerful tour de force! Truly a highly charged and time honored story!
