Vole, the Penn State Ballet Club, will be performing “A Night at the Movies,” this Sunday in Heritage Hall at 11 a.m.
Vole is the only dance club on campus that allows dancers of all skill levels to perform. There are weekly technique classes offered for beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. Dancers may also audition for a special company group as well as attend extra rehearsals for their performance numbers.
Admission is free and open to the public.
The performance will showcase 90 dancers in 19 dance numbers, all featuring music from motion pictures.
Emily Simmons, a senior majoring in pubic relations, is the PR chair for the club and really thinks that this show will be one to remember.
“Vole does a good job at entertaining audiences,” Simmons explained. “We are not a traditional ballet club, so it is more fun to watch.”
The dance numbers will have music from movies varying from “The Sound of Music” to “Twilight.” Each dance is completely different from the next, making the show that much more entertaining to watch. One of the favorites is a pointe number featuring a song from “RENT” choreographed by sophomore Molly Johnson.
“’RENT’ is definitely my favorite dance,” Simmons said. “I like pointe pieces and it is one of my favorite songs. Molly does a really good job at emphasizing her dancers assets.”
Vole has a show in both the fall and spring semesters, each with a different theme. The performers attend three mandatory dress rehearsals leading up to the show on Sunday.
