Koresh Dance Company
Friday, October 21 at 8pm
With choreography that has been called ““earthy, folk-dancey, emotionally direct, physically intense, and ostentatiously eccentric,” this Philadelphia-based dance company celebrates its 25th anniversary year with a program entitled “Classic Koresh” featuring choreographic interpretations of the music of Mozart, Bach, Beethoven and Ravel.
This performance is presented in cooperation with Union College and made possible by a gift from Gus and Sue Davis, class of ’59, in memory of their daughter Stephanie.
