'An Evening of Dance' to benefit children in Uganda

"An Evening of Dance," a benefit for the children in war-torn Africa, will be presented by the Coastal Carolina Upstage Theatre Company Friday, March 27 at 7:30 p.m. in Wheelwright Auditorium. Admission is free, but donations are accepted.

The dance concert, performed by 40 Coastal Carolina University students, will raise money and awareness for the Invisible Children Organization, a group dedicated to helping children who live amidst civil war in Northern Uganda.

Inspired by the stories of the Invisible Children, eight choreographers, all Coastal Carolina University students and faculty members, have composed original pieces in a variety of dance styles including jazz, hip hop, ballet, modern, lyrical, contemporary and tap.

Professors who choreographed or arranged dance for the show are Monica Bell, Barbara Hartwig, Aaron McAllister and Alice Anne Oakes.

Student choreographers featured in the show are John St. Croix, a sophomore dramatic arts major from Camden; Jasmine Edney, a junior pre-physical therapy major from Columbia; Sarah Mullis, a freshman musical theatre major from Columbia; and Brittany Taylor, a senior musical theatre major from Conway; and Jenna Tummino, a junior musical theatre major from Myrtle Beach.

All proceeds raised at the event will directly benefit Invisible Children by providing education, safety and homes to the children of the country.

For more information, call the Wheelwright Box Office at 843-349-2502.
