NEWPORT, R.I. – SRU Dance, Salve Regina’s largest student-run organization, will present its spring performance, “Come Alive!” on Saturday and Sunday, April 21-22 in the Rodgers Recreation Center. Both performances are open to the public.
Saturday’s performance will begin at 7 p.m. with an admission price of at least a $1 donation to the Andrea Rizzo Foundation, while Sunday’s performance will begin at 1 p.m. with an admission of $5. At both shows, children young enough to sit on an adult’s lap get in free.
This year’s spring performance will include more than 30 dances with styles including hip hop, jazz, tap, lyrical and Irish step. The club boasts more than 120 performers, all dancing to some of today’s most popular music.
SRU Dance continues to support the Andrea Rizzo Foundation and its efforts to raise money for children’s cancer research through dance therapy programs. SRU Dance’s fall performance raised more than $1,700 in donations for those causes.
Andrea Rizzo was a graduate of Salve Regina who was killed by a drunk driver at the age of 24. As a childhood cancer survivor, Andrea’s dream was to become a dance therapist.
