A wide variety of dance styles will be on display when the ODU dance program presents its annual fall concert Nov. 10-12 at the Wells Theatre, 110 East Tazewell St., Norfolk. Performances are scheduled for 8 p.m. Nov. 11, and 2 and 8 p.m. Nov. 12.

The dances are choreographed by guest artists, ODU faculty, and selected students.

Marilyn Marloff, associate professor and director of the dance program, contributes "Kinetoscope," a fun and lively romp for three women reminiscent of an old-fashioned silent movie. It was performed outdoors Sept. 28 as part of the university's Arts on the Way program.

Amanda Kinzer, assistant professor of dance, presents a dreamily romantic trio, "Passage," exploring the relationship between dance and love, tracing our love lives from dances of seduction, through ceremonial wedding dances, to dances of joyful fun with our children.

Additionally, Kinzer will perform a solo work of her own choreography to Alicia Terzian's "Shantiniketan," a contemplative work to solo flute and spoken poetry. This piece was first performed with live accompaniment at a multimedia performance by Creo, ODU's new-music ensemble. A modern dance choreographed by Kinzer for five women will be premiered for the concert. This dance will take the audience on a journey from the beginning of life to the end.

Adjunct faculty members Jessica Page and Tami White will offer new dances performed by ODU students. White contributes a contemporary ballet piece to "Moon Dance" by Van Morrison. The dance is a flirtatious trio for three women. Page's jazz piece, titled "Dark Beat" and performed to music by Oscar G, explores the addictive relationship between dance and drumming. The large group of dancers is compelled to move as long as the drums play. Adjunct faculty member Joni Petre-Scholtz will choreograph a new large-group ballet piece to music by Nina Simone.

Tickets are $10 and are available at the Arts and Letters Box Office in the Diehn Fine and Performing Arts Center, by phone at 683-5305 or at the door. For more information about the concert call 683-3002 or 683-4354.
