Dancers Unlimited present Spring 2006 Show

New Mexico State University's Dancers Unlimited will present their annual spring concert "Sweet Dreams of Rhythm and Dancing" at 7 p.m. March 10 and 11 at the Onate High School Performing Arts Center.

w is entirely student-choreographed and includes a variety of dance styles, musical tastes, costumes and lighting. "Sweet Dreams of Rhythm and Dancing" will include jazz, hip hop, lyrical, swing and tap.

"People should come see our show because it has a lot of variety, and to support dance in the community. It's going to be a lot of fun and we have worked really hard putting it together," said Dancers Unlimited Vice President Amanda Montoya, a sophomore majoring in family and child sciences and dance.

This year's show includes styles of dance that haven't been seen in previous Dancers Unlimited performances. First, the show takes you back to the 1920s in a solo Charleston piece. Also, a tap performance will be included for the first time in two years with Jailbirds, an upbeat piece to the music of Elvis Presley.

The show also presents fast-paced jazz pieces to techno beats and music by Rob Zombie, as well as lyrical pieces to music by Kelly Clarkson and the Goo Goo Dolls.

Dancers Unlimited was formed in 1985 by a group of students who had one thing in common - the passion of dance. The club is a student-run, non-profit organization with approximately 20 active members studying a variety of subjects.
