Ormao Dance Company offering discounted tickets to students this weekend

Ormao brings the beauty of live dance performance to our community, offering performances in the intimate Ormao Black Box Theater. Audiences seated in the round choose their vantage point, offering an intricate dance between viewer and performers. 

The shows, performed on this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, will have a significant amount of UCCS Theater and Dance representation. UCCS professors dancing/choreographing include Rosely Conz, Tiffany Tinsely-Weeks, Mary Ripper-Baker and Cheri Orr. UCCS alumni include Caleb Hall, Hollyn Pinar and David Foster. 

In-the-Round features five choreographers with lives and narratives uniquely their own. Brazil-born and current UCCS Dance Professor Rosely Conz brings themes of motherhood, immigration and identity to the evening. Larry Keigwin, Artisitic Director of Keigwin+Company (New York City) and Co-Director of Green Box Arts, brings the jazz club atmosphere in a revival work for the company. Maddie Douglas features her first choreographed piece for Ormao influenced by the styles of Victor Quijada (Rubberband Dance), Ohad Nahrin, and many others. Colorado Springs-born choreographer Jordan McHenry offers a piece of tenderness about rejuvenation and re-entry. NYC based choreographer Tiffany Mills whisks audiences away into a dreamscape reinvented with Ormao Dance Company.
