Jayme Johnson and Nicole Hanson to Perform Senior Dance Recital

RELEASED: Nov. 8, 2005

EAU CLAIRE — University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire students Jayme Ann Johnson, Madison, and Nicole Hanson, Grafton, will present a senior dance recital at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 13, in the Riverside Theatre of the Haas Fine Arts Center. All the pieces to be performed were choreographed by Hanson and Johnson, unless otherwise noted.

The program will open with "The Rehearsal," performed by Johnson, Hanson and two other dancers to Chopin's Etude in C Minor, Op. 10 No. 12. The piece depicts four dancers rehearsing in a studio and includes a barre movement that shows the different ballet positions.

Next is "Get Funky," a funk/street dancing piece performed by eight dancers, including Hanson and Johnson, to "Miss You," a Rolling Stones tune remixed by Dr. Dre.

Johnson will perform a solo in "Lies," a piece she choreographed to Save Farris' song by the same name.

A cha-cha and salsa piece, choreographed by senior Kara Noble, Poynette, to Fiesta Latina's "Eso Pasa Siempre," will feature six dancers, including Johnson, Hanson and Noble.

Hanson will solo in "Lost," a piece she choreographed to Ginny Owens' recording of "Someone Searching."

Nine dancers, including Johnson and Hanson, will team up for "Chaos," a modern dance piece performed to the song "Clubbed to Death" as performed by Rob Dougan. According to the two choreographers, the piece is intended to show different things about the world we live in. Johnson performs the part of the Storyteller and Hanson is Hope. The dance depicts different cliques in school, a brawl, and partner work that shows how people work together.

"All That Jazz" will be performed by Hanson and Johnson, with the help of six of their fellow dancers, to Katherine Zeta-Jones' recorded version of the song of the same name from the musical " Chicago." The piece is done in classic Bob Fosse style.

The performance will conclude with an ensemble piece featuring seven dancers: "Bam-a-lam," performed to the Spiderbait's recording of "Black Betty." The tap piece features rhythm tap and is also about having fun with movement.

The dance performance is free and open to the public.
