Shorter Univer­sity will host its Spring Dance con­cert to­day and Fri­day in the Mi­nor Fine Arts build­ing Art Gallery start­ing at 7:30 p.m.

The con­cert is free to the pub­lic and will fea­ture three orig­i­nal pieces chore­ographed by Shorter Univer­sity’s dance pro­fes­sor, Faith Im.

A va­ri­ety of gen­res will be rep­re­sented in the 30-minute con­cert in­clud­ing jazz spir­i­tual, mod­ern and con­tem­po­rary bal­let. In­spired by the joy and free­dom of move­ment, the con­cert will show­case stu­dent dancers as well as in­clude live vo­cal and pi­ano ac­com­pa­ni­ment.

“I and the stu­dents are pas­sion­ate about shar­ing our work” said Im. “I am blessed by my dancers’ ea­ger­ness to share their tal­ent, and the sup­port of our Shorter com­mu­nity in mak­ing the con­cert hap­pen. I want ev­ery­one to take this op­por­tu­nity to be in­spired and en­livened by our per­for­mance.”

The dance pro­gram at Shorter is rel­a­tively new, with a dance mi­nor first be­ing of­fered in 2013. The pro­gram hopes to cul­ti­vate a gen­er­a­tion of well-rounded dancers; with a pas­sion for per­form­ing and ar­tis­ti­cally in­clined.
