Perpetual Motion this year celebrates 30 years of dance! Performances are April 5, 6, and 7 at 7 p.m.

Perpetual Motion 2018 will feature 24 pieces of original student choreography, in styles from Afro-Caribbean to Irish to swing, and performances will include more than 80 University student dancers as well as a few students from St. Andrew’s-Sewanee. The public is invited, and the three nights of performances are free.

Perpetual Motion is a student-led performing dance company that started in 1989 and is designed to give students an opportunity to perform for the Sewanee community in many forms and styles of dance.

Perpetual Motion is also an adventure. It has elements of surprise. Some pieces are raw expressions of emotion. Others are playful forms of art. Previous styles have included belly dance, salsa, country, modern, Irish, classical and modern ballet, hip hop, lyrical, even disco.

So, what will Perpetual Motion 2018 bring?

Answer: Pure entertainment!
