EVANSTON DANCE ENSEMBLE PRESENTS THE BIG NIGHT

PAIRING BALLET & CONTEMPORARY DANCE AT THE BALL

 Opening Friday, March 14

The universal teen ritual of social dance events and the timelessness of dance as a social medium are the overarching themes of the Evanston Dance Ensemble’s (EDE) March 2014 production The Big Night.  Opening Friday, March 14, The Big Night is presented in two acts – Graduation Ball and Prom 2014 – and marks the first time EDE has created an evening of dance pairing a stylized classical ballet with a second act of individual contemporary concert pieces.  EDE will present five performances of The Big Night at the Josephine Louis Theater on Northwestern University’s campus (20 Art Circle Drive) – Friday, March 14 at 7 p.m.; Saturday, March15 at 1 and 4 p.m.; and Sunday, March 15 at 1 and 4 p.m.  Performance runs 45 min.

Tickets for The Big Night are priced at $16.00 for children under 18, students and seniors, and $24.00 for adults.  Tickets go on sale February 5 and may be purchased by calling the Northwestern Box Office at 847.491.7282 or by going online at www.tic.northwestern.edu.
