HATTIESBURG - The University of Southern Mississippi Repertory Dance Company will present three opportunities to see student choreographic works at their best on Dec. 4-6 at Studio 115 in the Theatre and Dance Building.

Junior choreographer Anna Dupree created a work inspired by the Brazilian martial art form Capoeira. Using Brazilian percussion and guitar as its musical background, the dance demonstrates the artistry, athleticism and passion of the Brazilian culture.

A trio of dancers will investigate three-dimensional movement based on the concept of a spiral in a work by senior choreographer Jessica Burgos. While standing on small, flat, and freely rotating platforms, the dancers will form spiraling patterns in space with their bodies as they rotate. The dancer's individual and combined movements conjure images of ice skaters and music box figures.

Senior dance major Mignon Reid calls her piece "Remember." The feeling of true friendship and the need to give and receive love was her inspiration for her choreography.

"It will surprise the audience at both the beginning and the end," Reid said. "I hope it will give some audience members a little something to take home with them."

The performances each evening begin at 7:30 p.m. in Studio 115 at the Theatre and Dance Building. Tickets are $5 and are available at the door only. For information call the dance office at (601) 266-4161.
