Fall Dance Concert promises variety, premieres

As always, the Minnesota State University, Mankato Fall Dance Concert will be featuring an array of dance techniques, and many of the pieces are brand new.

Dance Professor Daniel Stark said this year’s program includes ballet, modern, jazz-based modern and an Afro-Cuban dance. Pieces include a duet about a couple in love who experience a loss, one about the absurdity of television, and one about Minnesota’s North Shore, among various others.

But words hardly do these dances justice. Pictures do better to capture the beauty of what will be on the stage. (Photos by Dan Norman. Illustrations by Matthew Caron.)
