A swish of red fabric. A perfectly executed turn. A graceful leap.
At a technical rehearsal at the University of Arizona School of Dance, colorful costumes swirl across the stage and drums reverberate in the chest as some of America's most talented young dancers prepare for the spotlight.
UA Dance is the top-ranked dance program at a public university in the U.S., offering rigorous training in ballet, modern and jazz dance. The school does more than 40 performances a year, including its popular fall production, Premium Blend, which put more than 70 student dancers on the Stevie Eller Dance Theatre stage in November.
