DANCE INSTITUTE'S WORK SUMMARY
Dance Institute's Work Summary is a presentation of class exercises and/or repertoire that have been prepared as part of the curriculum of each level and created expressly to represent the level's vocabulary and training goals. Tickets are required for Work Summary and other performances held in the Paul A. Daum Theatre in Kolbe Hall on The University of Akron campus and are $5.00 each. Tickets are not required for Work Summary performances held in The University of Akron Guzzetta Hall’s Albrecht Performance Studio or Recital Hall. Work Summary is typically presented in practice clothes. Simple costume pieces from Dance Institute’s wardrobe may be used to enhance the staging. Dance Institute students attending the performance of a sibling are given a complimentary ticket.
