BELIZE NATIONAL DANCE COMPANY PERFORMANCE HOSTED BY VITERBO
LA CROSSE, Wis.The Belize National Dance Company will perform its unique style of internationally acclaimed folkloric dance at Viterbo University on Thursday, Nov. 6.
A tiny country sandwiched between Mexico and Guatemala, Belize may be small, but the Company has made a big impression with its explosive culture and beautiful dance. Formed in 1990, the Company expresses Belizean culture while breathing new life into traditional dances. Belize National Dance Company astounded audiences with its first production of "Weeping Willow," set to the music of Quincy Jones. Its most recent work, "Budd Bank Wedding," was choreographed by a Belizean and influenced by the country’s native dances.
Inspired by Latin American and Caribbean culture, this multiethnic group of highly skilled dancers performs both contemporary and traditional works with beauty, flair, and a commitment to the future of its country.
Belize National Dance Company is part of the Bright Star Season and is co-sponsored by Coulee State Bank and Target. It is supported, in part, by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the state of Wisconsin.
Show time is Thursday, Nov. 6, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $30/24. For information contact the Viterbo University Box Office at 608-796-3100.
