     HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University’s Department of Music and Performing Arts’ dance company, Dance Performance Project, will present “In This House” Nov. 15-17 at 7:30 p.m. in Vonnie Borden Theatre.
     Director of Dance Keith “Skip” Costa said Southeastern’s resident dance company will again present an exclusive concert that brings together dancers, choreographers, musicians, composers, and technical staff.
     “I think that one of the most incredible aspects about this work is that, as the show takes the audience through each room of the house, it provides an opportunity for the performers and musicians to collaboratively work together live on-stage,” he said.
     Choreographers for the concert are Ashley Barbarin, White Castle; Alaura Cervini, Metairie; Brianna Denmark, Denham Springs; Forrest Duplantier, Madisonville; Hayley Jordan, Baton Rouge; and Alexis May, Walker.
     Dancers performing in the concert include Madeline Aldana and Sean Gilvey, Mandeville; Kayla Coston, Hammond; Morgan Georgetown, Baker: Stephanie Harris and Jasmine Mingo, Slidell; Ildefonso Vasquez, Marrero; Sophia Miano, Garyville; Allison Mims, Pearl River; Amanda Riviere, LaPlace; Doreen Rolen, Amite; Jonathan Ryan and Amber Whiteside, Covington; and Katherine Stansbury, Ponchatoula.
     Composers/musicians are Luke Orlando of Hammond and Jessee Yantis of Ethel, with costume design by Brianna Carter of LaPlace and Tessa Nichols of Mandeville serving as stage manager.
     Tickets to the concert are $8 for students, seniors and children and $10 general admission and will be available one hour prior to the performance in the Vonnie Borden Theatre lobby.
