Among the student pieces being showcased is a video-based dance work created and performed by senior dance-education majors Emily Enloe and Joni Convington. Their still-untitled piece will be filmed outside and edited to create the final dance.

Artistic directors for Wideman/Davis Dance, Thaddeus Davis and Tanya Wideman-Davis, both instructors at the USC Dance Program, will direct the late program. Of “Balance,” Davis says it connects the plight of the homeless to the lives of those more fortunate.

“The ‘balance’ in the title of our piece refers to the balancing act we all have to do to avoid homelessness,” he said.

Also on the program is the original Wideman/Davis work, “Rock and My Soul,” a celebration of the 40th anniversary of Woodstock.

As with all of their societal-themed performances, Wideman/Davis will hold a discussion afterwards. “Balance” is sponsored in part by the USC Arts Institute.
