For Immediate Release

Tickets are currently on sale for the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo Dance Collective, scheduled for Friday, September 28 at 7:30 pm in the Performing Arts Center. Now in its third year, the dance concert brings together new and experienced choreographers and dancers from Island Dance Academy, Center Stage Dance Alliance, Paradise Performing Arts Center, N2 Dance, and the UH Hilo Dance Department.

“Each year we grow just a little bit more, adding to the foundation that was laid the previous year and expanding upon that,” said Dori Yamada, producer of the show.
“It’s been exciting to see more submissions from younger choreographers this year. They bring their unique perspective and movement through some very thought- provoking pieces.”

Lawrence Mano, a seasoned dancer, choreographer, and a graduate of UH Hilo, presents his last Dance Collective piece before moving to the mainland to pursue a career in dance.

“Being able to express myself through my choreography and being able to showcase the results of our training are some of the reasons I enjoy participating in the Dance Collective,” he said. “I love that it strives to involve the entire Big Island dance community, whether they belong to a studio, dance for UH Hilo or dance independently, everyone is welcome.”

Proceeds from the event will go toward providing dance opportunities for the island community and perpetuating Dance Collective.

Tickets are open seating and priced at $20 General and $10 UH Hilo/Hawaiʻi CC students (with a valid student ID) and children up to age 17. Tickets are available by calling the UH Hilo Box Office at 932-7490 or ordering online at
