DEC The Company to perform March 9

For the Metro Wire

DEC The Company will perform Saturday, March 9 at Sentry Theater @1800.

The Company consists of 13 dancers from SPASH, Pacelli High School, and P.J. Jacobs and Ben Franklin junior high schools. Ballet, jazz, modern, tap and contemporary dances will be performed.

Some dances demonstrate technique; some strive for artistry; some are process-based, and others are designed to provide entertainment. Choreography is from students, instructors and guest choreographers. UW-Milwaukee Dance Department and UW-Madison Dance Department will also perform.

Dance Education Center founded DEC The Company in 2015 with the mission to provide a pre-professional experience for dancers to develop artistry, create works that demonstrate a high level of composition and choreography and embrace additional performance opportunities, while supporting fellow company members holistically.

Showtime is 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students and are available at the door or by calling DEC at (715) 295-0297.

Proceeds will benefit the Playhouse Theatre Group of Central Wisconsin.
