Dance Repertory Company to present annual spring concert

WINONA, Minn. — The Dance Repertory Company’s annual spring concert, “Juxtapose,” will be held 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 26, and 3 p.m. Saturday, April 27, in Saint Mary’s University’s Page Theatre.

For close to four decades, the Dance Repertory Company has delighted the Winona community with quality dance productions, featuring local dancers in classical and contemporary works. This year the DRC presents a production centered on collaboration with the arts. The DRC is the pre-professional performance group of the Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts. Company members participate in rehearsals, technique classes, and stage performances.

This production will feature pieces from numerous genres of dance including hip hop, modern, jazz, tap, contemporary ballet and pointe. The theme is “collaboration” — with each piece incorporating another aspect of the arts … from live music to multi-media, and much more!

These dancers currently train at the Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts, Saint Mary’s University, and Winona State University. “Juxtapose” showcases the effervescent spirit, vibrant energy, and technical and artistic abilities that continue to inspire audiences year after year.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students and senior citizens and are available at or by calling the SMU box office from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at (507) 457-1715.
