Dance Institute Work Summary
Dance Institute's Work Summary is a presentation of class exercises and/or repertoire that have been prepared throughout the semester and created expressly to represent the vocabulary and training goals of each level. Tickets are required for Work Summary 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.
TAP WORK SUMMARY INFORMATION
DI Tap students who are enrolled in ballet classes will dance their Tap Work Summary the same day/time of their ballet Work Summary presentation. Tap Only students should contact the office for the day of their Work Summary performance. Additional information about all Work Summary performances will be distributed separately.
