Last night was the opening performance of "The Heart Speaks", the latest show featuring Cassius' Lighting Design. The dancers and crew have been hard at work all week getting ready for opening, and the first performance was a definite success! The Eastern Illinois University Dancers put together an amazing show featuring modern dance, ballet, jazz, and hip hop choreography. Below are a few of my favorite photos from the final dress rehearsals on Wednesday night.
The EIU Dancers are: Melanie Bradshaw, Kristlyn Dalton, Jordyn Gandolfi, Trish Garvey, Margaret Hall, Jennifer Johnson, Kaitlyn Kavanaugh, Jenna Miglio, Carrie Murphy, Melissa Pallardy, Nicolette Sheridan, Krista Stephens, Alyssa Triptow, Lyndsey Weber, Edward Swingler, and Kayne O'Brien. They are Directed by Antoine Thomas.
Congratulations to Cassius, the crew at The Doudna Fine Arts Center, The EIU Dancers and Antoine Thomas on an excellent production!
