LOGAN — The Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company brings what is described as an exciting performance to the Caine College of the Arts Nov. 22 at 7:30 p.m. in the Performance Hall on Utah State University’s campus.
The performance is part of a weeklong residency for the dance company in Cache Valley public schools.
“The Caine College of the Arts is honored and delighted to host and welcome Utah’s own Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company to our campus as part of its 50th anniversary tour,” said Craig Jessop, dean of USU’s Caine College of the Arts. “We congratulate and thank Ririe-Woodbury for its unparalleled contribution to the cultural life of our state through the beauty and grace of dance.”
Ririe-Woodbury is known for performing innovative, original works and commissioning choreographers of exceptional talent. This is also the first season Daniel Charon, artistic director, is with the company. Charon told “The Salt Lake Tribune” that his time in graduate school led him to be ready to be behind-the-scenes and support the success of other people within and through an organization.
The dance company was founded in 1964 by Joan Woodbury and Shirley Ririe, both professors of dance at the University of Utah. Throughout the years the company has performed in every state in the United States, as well as in Europe, South Africa, Southeast Asia, the Caribbean and the British Isles.
Tickets for Ririe Woodbury are $15 general admission and $10 for USU students with ID in advance. Tickets at the door are $20 general admission and $15 for USU students with ID.
