GENESEO, N.Y. — The State University of New York at Geneseo's Dance Ensemble, in collaboration with the college's School of the Arts, will present its fall dance concert, "A Journey Unfolding," in December.

Performances will be at 8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 9, and Saturday, Dec. 10, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 11, in the Alice Austin Theater, located in Brodie Hall.

"A Journey Unfolding" will feature diverse forms of dance, from classical ballet to political commentary to conceptual modern.

Celebrating its 38th anniversary, the Geneseo Dance Ensemble continues to carry on its tradition of showcasing works choreographed by students.

The concert will showcase works choreographed by Jonette Lancos, professor of dance and director of the concert; Ruben Ornelas, visiting lecturer and associate director; and this semester's Dance Composition I class. Caitlin Buschner of Honeoye Falls, N.Y., and Courtney Belloff of Adams, N.Y., will serve as student assistant directors. Johnnie Ferrell, associate professor, and his team of students, will oversee lighting designs and technical aspects of the show.
