Ethnic Dance on Stage in the 21st Century ( panel discussion )
Featuring several nationally known choreographers and ethnic dance performance group artistic directors, this session will address the preservation versus entertainment conflict: what happens when you put ethnic dances on stage? Is there a place for performance in ethnic preservation? Do exposure and education justify changes to traditional dance forms?
From 3:30 - 4:30 ,pm,, following the panel discussion will be a lecture by Jerry Helt who is marking his 60th year as a Square Dance caller. Jerry will speak about his life as a caller, choreographer, calling instructor and recording artist. Known for his humorous, fun teaching style, Jerry will share stories from his early career in the 1940's to the present day.
