"Unknown Endeavors,” choreographed to the music of Imogene Heap, will be one of seven pieces performed Feb. 23 during the senior capstone dance recital of UW-Eau Claire senior Kari Sederstrom.

EAU CLAIRE — University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire senior Kari Sederstrom, Rosemount, Minn., will present her capstone dance recital at 2 p.m. Feb. 23 in Kjer Theatre.

Sederstrom was involved in the choreography of all seven pieces to be presented.

The show will open with "ABC Rhythms," by Sederstrom, Tarrah Irussi and Samantha Michaelson. It will be performed a cappella to highlight the sounds and rhythms of tap dancing.

"Red Light," with music by Jonny Lang, is choreographed by Sederstrom and Lani Lutz. It includes 11 dancers and an understudy. Sederstrom said the piece is meant to convey the mood of coming home and relaxing after a long day at work.

"Unknown Endeavors" is choreographed to the music of Imogen Heap. It was performed at the American College Dance Festival in 2007 in Wichita, Kan.

Three dancers, including Sederstrom, will present "Life by the Drop" to the music of Stevie Ray Vaughan. The piece, a combination of tap and jazz dancing, explores creating complementary movement to the same music with different dance genres.

"More of that Nothing," choreographed to "Magdalena" by Sergio Mendes, has an Afro-Cuban feel to it, Sederstrom said

Sederstrom will take "Falling into Memories" to the ACDFA competition in March. The piece will open with poetry by Ryan Kopperud followed by "Breathing Light," an instrumental piece by Nitin Sawhney. Five dancers and five walkers will perform.

Sederstrom said "Falling into Memories" is dedicated to those lost but not forgotten.

Concluding the recital is a solo performance by Sederstrom. She will dance "Simply at Ease" to the music of Jason Mraz.

Sederstrom said she's satisfied with her time spent dancing at the UW-Eau Claire.

"I've grown and accomplished a great deal through the dance program and Concert Dance Company," she said. "I've had fantastic opportunities to dance and appreciate the art of dance."

The recital is free and open to the public.
