LSDC invites you to “Dance First, Think Later”

The Le Moyne Student Dance Company (LSDC) will be holding its winter concert Dec. 1-4 at the Performing Arts Center. The show is entitled “Dance First, Think Later.”

“‘Dance First, Think Later’ is basically a way for us to explain the passion we feel for dance,” said LSDC executive director Adriana Battle. “For many of us, dance is an incredible outlet and it brings so much joy to our lives.”

As always, the entire concert is choreographed by students as well as a few outsiders. This year’s guest choreographers are Joe Walker, Cristina Battle and Laurie Deyo.

NYC resident Walker recently collaborated with Le Moyne graduate Marissa Roberts (class of ‘10) on “Before the Fame,” a new show about Lady GaGa. Cristina Battle (class of ‘07) is Adriana’s sister and, according to Adriana, “has continued creating amazing dances for us throughout the year.” Deyo, who has been involved with LSDC for many years, is regarded as “a very important choreographer in the local dance community.”

“We are so lucky to experience working with these successful and talented people who share our love for dance,” Battle said.

Senior Kelsey Moriarty noted that “Dance First, Think Later” may be one of LSDC’s most diverse and ambitious concerts yet. Tap, hip-hop, contemporary and African dances are among the variety of dances while the accompanying songs range from slow tunes to Metallica hits. A few numbers also make use of props, including umbrellas, acting blocks and two-tier steps.

Battle hopes even those less inclined to attend dance concerts will consider going.

“Our shows are for everybody,” Battle said. “I know dance can sometimes have a connotation of being something equivalent to your little sister’s recitals. We pride ourselves on using everyday experiences to create our pieces and that is something that everyone can relate to and enjoy. And above all, our shows are meant to be entertaining and fun! I encourage everyone to check us out and see what we are all about.”

“Dance First, Think Later” takes place Thursday, Dec. 1, Friday, Dec. 2, and Saturday Dec. 3 at 8 p.m. in the PAC. There will also be a 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday, Dec. 4. Tickets are $4 for students and reservations are recommended. For more information, visit the PAC office or call (315) 445-4523.
