Written by Kate Lepard

The Texas Tech University Department of Theatre and Dance will present its annual Raider Red’s Awesome Dance Spectacular (RRADS) at 8 p.m. April 7-9 (Thursday-Saturday) and at 2 p.m. April 10 (Sunday) at the Maedgen Laboratory Theatre (18th Street between Boston and Flint Avenue).

The show features genres such as hip-hop, jazz, modern, ballet and avant-garde forms and is comprised entirely of student work.

“The dance faculty are thrilled that so many of our talented students are interested and engaged in the choreographic process outside of the everyday demands of their coursework,” said Assistant Professor Ali Duffy.  “We strive to feature as many of these dances as an evening-length show will allow.”

RRADS is the only dance production which has no enrollment or participation prerequisites. Prospective dance majors and minors who have not been officially admitted to the dance program can both choreograph and dance.  Choreographers are allowed to dance in their own numbers.

Tickets are $5 for adults and free for students with a valid Texas Tech ID. For more information, call the Maedgen Theatre box office at (806) 742-3603.
