Event description

Description

The world-famous BYU (Brigham Young University) Ballroom Dance Company is one of the most distinguished university dance companies in the world. Based in Provo, Utah, this company of 32 dancers – all of whom are full-time students at BYU – will launch the Northeastern U.S. Tour of its current show, Swing ‘n’ Sway, at Kodak Center (200 West Ridge Road) on Tuesday, May 1 at 7 p.m. Tickets for the one-night-only, family-friendly performance start at $18 (group discounts available*). Following the performance, audience members are invited to meet members of the renowned company.


Not only is BYU Ballroom Dance Company the largest amateur ballroom dance company in the world, but it has performed for millions of people in more than 35 countries. Highlights include extensive travel throughout China, Europe, Russia, Chile, and Argentina – even a command performance for the Royal Princess of Thailand. It was the first American formation team ever to win the British Championships in Blackpool, England, and won again in 2016. The Company also just won the 2017 United States Championship.


Swing ‘n’ Sway is a spectacular show that presents ballroom dance in a theatrical environment with a contemporary point of view. Directed and produced by BYU Professor Curt Holman, its compelling and creative choreography seamlessly segues from romantic waltzes to rhythmical sambas and other unexpected surprises. Colorful costumes and innovative, theatrical design give traditional ballroom dances a refreshing and relevant flare that engages the audiences of today. A hallmark of the show includes the Company’s award-winning and internationally acclaimed Ballroom and Latin competition medleys.


“They excel not just in formation maneuvers but in unison step-work that’s smooth as honey. Their partnering is seamless for swings and lifts,” wrote George Jackson of The Washington Post.
