Texas Tech hosting Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

The Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company will perform innovative contemporary dance to close the 2017-18 Presidential Lecture & Performance Series.

Founded in 1964 by Joan Woodbury and Shirley Ririe, two professors of dance at the University of Utah, the Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company has grown into an internationally renowned contemporary dance company that has performed in every state in the United States as well as throughout Europe, South Africa, Southeast Asia, the Caribbean and the British Isles.

In 1972, the company was one of 20 companies to participate in the Dance Touring Program and the Artists in the Schools program. This helped the company develop its education program, eventually becoming the national model for dance education in schools that still stands today.

The Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company’s goal is to make dance a viable part of everyone’s life, whether as observers, critics, performers or creators. The company’s performances and educational undertakings are a reflection of its philosophy that “Dance is for Everybody.”

Tickets for the performance are $18 and are available through Select-A-Seat at (806) 770-2000 or www.selectaseatlubbock.com. Texas Tech students are eligible to receive one free ticket with a valid student ID at the Student Union Building info desk.
