California State University, Northridge’s top student choreographers and dancers will demonstrate diverse choreographic vision, passionate dancing and powerful performances later this month at the university’s spring dance showcase “Kinesis: Emerging Choreography.

“Kinesis” is scheduled to take place at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 24, and at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 25, in the Plaza Del Sol Performance Hall in the University Student Union, located on the east side of the campus off Zelzah Street.

“‘Kinesis’ provides a glimpse into the art and life that is and continues to occur at CSUN,” said Paula Thomson, a professor in CSUN’s Department of Kinesiology in the College of Health and Human Development

Thomson defined “kinesis” as “the combining of form and the sensation of movement. Dance at its best does just that — both dancer and audience viscerally experience movement and sense the coherent form inherent in good choreography.”

She said the showcase will do just that, noting that it will spotlight many of the university’s “talented dancers and choreographers.”

“Choreographic diversity will be the hallmark of this concert, with dance styles ranging from Hip Hop to Contemporary to Afro-Fusion to Folklorico-Fusion,” she said.

Tickets are the show are $20 for the general public and $10 for students and seniors. To obtain tickets, call (818) 677- 2488.
