Gainesville, Fla. – UF student tickets for UFPA’s January and February performances are now on sale. Tickets are only $10 for each of the 22 performances and can be purchased with a Gator1 Card by calling 392-2787 or visiting the Phillips Center or University Box Office (located in the Reitz Student Union).
UFPA presents some of the world’s best dance companies during this on-sale period, including U.K.’s Motionhouse, who will perform the U.S. premiere of “Scattered” on Jan. 19; MOMIX, who will perform “Botanica” on Jan. 24; and Alvin Ailey Dance Theater (Feb. 19), who The New York Times called, “possibly the most successful modern dance company on the planet.”
On Feb. 15, Hooray for Hollywood takes a journey through the most popular musicals and films of the past 50 years, while the Dark Star Orchestra recreates Grateful Dead classics on Feb. 22.
The slate of UFPA’s January and February performances spans across virtually every genre including jazz (Live at Birdland, Feb. 16), classical (Fazil Say, Jan. 6), world (Creole Choir of Cuba, Feb. 26 and Kodo, Feb. 28), theatre (You Say Tomato, I Say Shut Up!, Jan 8-12 and Guru of Chai, Feb. 14-16), vocal (Vienna Boys Choir, Feb. 13), folk (Good Lovelies, Feb. 2-3), pre-recorded operas (“The Merry Widow,” Jan. 20 and “Attila,” Feb. 17) and much more.
“UFPA’s January and February lineup truly offers something for everyone,” UFPA director Michael Blachly said. “For $10 UF students have access to performances that can cost more than five times that amount elsewhere. We appreciate the University of Florida Student Government subsidy which makes this opportunity possible for students.”
The Phillips Center Box Office will be closed from Sunday, Dec. 23 to Thursday, Jan. 3.
