Burtness Theatre hosts historical modern dance production


Saturday, Feb. 2, at 7:30 p.m., the Minnesota Dance Ensemble will present a historically influenced modern dance performance at the Burtness Theatre.

The Minnesota Dance Ensemble was founded by Grand Forks native Laura Dvorak-Berry and is directed by her and Catie Hill.

This performance will be a reflection of history with pieces inspired by World War II, the hiding of Anne Frank, the eras of the 1950s and 1960s, and the novel "1984."

The company is based out of St. Cloud, Minn., and is a resident dance company of the Paramount Theater in St. Cloud. It includes 12 male and female dancers, and has been created by eight upcoming choreographers in the Twin Cities area. Tickets are $12 for adults and $6 for students. Tickets go on sale Monday, Jan. 28, at the Burtness Theatre Box Office. For further information on the company go to www.minnesotadancensemble.com
