Jacksonville University Dance to perform in the Caribbean

Jacksonville University Dance of Florida will perform an evening of modern dance choreography at 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 23, at the Teatro Luna Blou theater in Willemstad, Curacao.

The dancers will be in Curacao for one week teaching and taking classes with local dancers and performing as part of a College Study Abroad program led by JU professor Cari Coble.

Performing for the second time on the Caribbean island and back by popular demand, Jacksonville University Dance will premiere original student and faculty works. Dancers will push the boundaries of contemporary choreography in an evening of professional dance, according to Coble, JU associate professor of dance.

The last time the dancers performed at Teatro Luna Blou, the performance was sold out.
