KC dance students will present their annual dance concert at 8 p.m. Friday, May 2, in Van Cliburn Auditorium.

Tickets are $10 or $5 with a student ID. Tickets will be sold at the box office in the auditorium starting at 7 on the night of the performance.

This event is led by Cathy Beckman, ballet, modern dance and performance course instructor, and Shelley Wayne, tap and jazz instructor.

“One of our goals is to show variety and our skills at Kilgore College,” Beckman said. “Every year is different, though, because it depends on the dancers.”

The instructors say this event gives students a chance to participate in a real dance concert, allowing them to show off their own choreography and perform different styles of dances, including a tap and jazz routine and several other styles.

“I’m excited to dance in a smaller setting because it will have more of a concert feel to it, rather than a big production,” Emily Diehl, Allen freshman said.

“I am also excited to perform choreography that I have created with my fellow classmates,” she added

Students in the dance classes are excited to work together and create their own types of original choreography.

“I am excited to have one more chance to dance, and I didn’t have to end the year with Revels,” Robin Richardson, Flower Mound sophomore and Rangerette, said.
