FLY Dance Company to continue 17th season of Davis-Waldorf Performing Arts Series


The 17th season of the Davis-Waldorf Performing Arts Series (DWPAS) will continue on February 15 with FLY Dance Company’s “The Gentlemen of Hip Hop.” The Houston-based troupe performs in a style called “theatrical hip hop” that features a variety of contemporary dance choreography with symphonic, Latin and classic pop music. The performance will be in the Davis Hall Theater on the USAO campus at 7 p.m.

“FLY dance company is a perfect match for the mission of the performing arts series,” said Katie Davis professor of theatre arts and series coordinator. “They will offer a workshop for USAO students and we have invited students from local dance schools to join this master class. FLY will perform for the public the night after Valentine’s day, so affordable tickets to this special event will be a perfect date-night gift! Audiences who watch dance competition shows on television will enjoy the creativity and diversity of this show, especially with music that they recognize and love!”

FLY Dance Company was originally formed in 2001 when Kathy Musick Wood, a retired public-school dance teacher, encountered a crew of street dancers and immediately visualized how she could combine their skills and her choreography to create an act that would appeal to audiences far and wide. By mixing the dancers’ raw movement with a wide variety of music, classic choreography techniques, clever staging, acting, costuming and comedy, she created the company’s unique style.

The Davis-Waldorf Performing Arts Series is made possible in-part by support from the Chickasha Public School Foundation, Mid-America Arts Alliance, National Endowment for the Arts, Oklahoma Arts Council and the USAO Foundation. Its mission is to encourage attendance at high-quality performing arts events as an aspect of a liberal arts education, to provide an affordable entertainment resource for our college family and our community, and to become a leader in local arts education by presenting relevant and culturally diverse programming that reflects and broadens the aesthetic of our audiences.
