Yow Dance at Trinity this weekend

There’s a whole lot of entertainment going on this weekend, but here’s one event you might have missed — Yow Dance’s inaugural concert of the season at Trinity Prep in Winter Park. The facts:

Oct. 8-10, 2010
8 p.m. Friday and Saturday
2 p.m. Sunday
Trinity Preparatory School
5700 Trinity Prep Lane
Winter Park, FL 32792
Admission: $10 ($8 for seniors, students and hospitality)

To kick off its third season, Yow Dance shares the stage with In Motion Dance Project’s pre-professional company at Trinity Preparatory High School, Oct. 8 and 9 at 8 p.m. and Oct. 10 at 2 p.m. in Yow Dance!

Provocative, proverbial and ever-pleasing to the soul, this experience will not disappoint. Yow has set five pieces to classical music, including the introduction of two dances. After premiering its finale section to rave reviews at the 2010 Red Chair Affair, Yow Dance will be presenting Blackberry Winter in its entirety during this set of performances. The piece showcasing the artfully composed concerto by Conni Ellisor is an endearing story juxtaposed with themes of innocence and maturity and depicts a mother’s wish for her daughter.

Yow is also thrilled to present Gloria, a piece choreographed by his dear friend, Jason Ohlberg of Seattle, Wash. A dance first set on Dance Kaleidoscope in 2001, this glorious holiday homage is set to Vivaldi’s sacred score and is sure to enhance the company’s current repertoire.
