Northwestern State University’s Theatre and Dance program will showcase its faculty and students in a performance of “Revelations of Dance,” April 19-20 in the A.A. Fredericks Auditorium. Show time is at 7:30 p.m. each evening with a 2 p.m. matinee on April 20.

Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for children and senior citizens. Northwestern State, BPCC@NSU and Louisiana School for Math, Science and the Arts students are admitted free with a current student I.D. Reservations are not required for “Revelations of Dance.”

The performance will include “Esmeralda Variation,” “Sunscreen” and “Winter Solstice” by Kirstin Riehl, “Full Circle,” “Ave Maria,” “In the Deep,” “Mom's Secret,” “It's Time...” and “Vogue” by Brett Alan Garfinkel and “Sweet Beginnings,” “On Foot” and “Hotel Dieu” by Rebecca Morgan.

“I’m in four dance works and even though they are in different styles, they are cohesive,” said senior Lauren Bovia of Maurepas. “The variety of styles speaks to the creativity of our faculty. We are exposed to every major style of dance plus musical theatre, which is a great opportunity for students.”

Bovia is graduating in May and has been selected for an internship at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival in the Berkshire Hills of western Massachusetts. Jacob’s Pillow is America’s longest running dance festival, originating in 1933.

Called "the dance center of the nation" by the New York Times, Jacob’s Pillow brings together dance, music, art, nature and culture, with more than 350 free and ticketed events including free outdoor performances, photography and art exhibits, free talks and discussions, tours, dance classes, onsite dining and much more. Dance companies from around the world and across the United States perform in two historic theatres and an outdoor stage throughout the summer.

Bovia will be a house manager and will be able to participate in master classes with internationally renowned dancers and choreographers.

“I am blown away by the opportunity I have,” said Bovia, who plans to move to New York to pursue a dance career after the Festival. “To be part of one of the leading dance festivals in the world and be around so many great dancers and choreographers is something I am looking forward to. This will be a big help for me as I move to my next step.”
