The dance department in UGA's Franklin College of Arts and Sciences will present the 2017 Young Choreographers Series Senior Exit Dance and Emerging Choreographers Concert Nov. 9-11 at 8 p.m. in the New Dance Theatre, located in the dance building on Sanford Drive. The concert is one of several dance events featured in 2017 UGA Spotlight on the Arts festival.

This year's Senior Exit Dance and Emerging Choreographers Concert showcases pieces choreographed by two senior dance majors, as well as other second- and third-year dance majors. The concert is a culmination of the growth and versatility that each dance major has been working toward. The pieces reflect each choreographer's style and creativity and showcase a variety of dance styles, music and concepts.

Gracie Bailey and Lindsay Giedl, bachelor's of fine arts candidates, each will present their creative progress as dancers, performers and choreographers with works of complex expressive themes and dynamic movement. Giedl's work explores ideas about the gender spectrum and gender fluidity through contemporary movement and live art. Bailey's piece investigates self-concept and human progress through the medium of light—from human's primal beginnings to present day. The audience also will see additional pieces from emerging choreographers Nieya Amezquita, Samantha Miller, Kennedy Butterfield and Rebecca Ommedal.

Ticket prices are $8 for students and seniors and $12 for general admission. They can be purchased at the Tate Student Center cashier's window, the Performing Arts Center box office, by phone at 706-542-4400 or online at pac.uga.edu. Tickets also may be purchased at the door, but advance purchase is recommended. Free parking is available in lots adjacent to the Dance Building after 5 p.m. or at the South Campus Parking Deck next to the Georgia Center for a small fee.
