Dancers hope to move audience

The Lincoln University Dance Troupe performs its 35th Anniversary Concert on April 8-10 in Richardson Auditorium.

This year’s theme, LUDT3: Transposed, Transfigured, Transformed, showcases the history of dance over the past 35 years.

“We want people to leave the show saying, ‘I know I can pick out one song that moved my soul and my heart,’” said founder and artistic director Theressa Ferguson. Students practice throughout the school year, fulfilling their passion for dance in a variety of outlets.

The troupe performs African, hip-hop, lyrical and jazz numbers for schools and other local groups in addition to their annual performance in Richardson Auditorium.

The dancers also travel out of state to learn from accomplished choreographers and to meet other historically black college dance troupes.

“It’s really an incredible opportunity to learn from highly elite, legitimate instructors,” said LaBradford Davis, who has been dancing with the LU troupe the longest of the nine members.
