Join Catawba College for its second iteration of The Outrageous Dance Project at 7:30 p.m. April 20-23 in Keppel Auditorium of the Robertson College-Community Center.

In the final show of Catawba's 2015-2016 Theatre Season, The Outrageous Dance Project offers a repertory dance concert co-directed by Catawba alumni, Richard Steinert '81 and Meredith Fox '07, Assistant Professor of Musical Theatre and Dance.

According to Fox, "This performance has one unifying theme - the art of dance.  Each piece is its own work of art with its own theme, mood, character, story, etc. and should be viewed as such.  The audience can expect to see a variety of dance styles from classical and contemporary ballet to musical theatre to jazz to ballroom to modern and contemporary dance."
