CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – The School of Arts, Media and Communication (SAMC) at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi and the Corpus Christi Concert Ballet hosted the 14th annual Bailando Dance Festival from Thursday, Sept. 26, through Saturday, Sept. 28, on the University campus.  The festival was open to the public and included adjudication concerts, master classes, and ended with a celebration gala.

This year’s festival included a performance by Audition Director and Soloist for the Moscow Ballet, Ekaterina Uksusnikova, and the Ad Deum Dance Company from Houston.

Uksusnikova, a highly-trained dancer and accredited dance/movement pedagogue, performed on Friday evening in the Performing Arts Center. During the performance, a panel of experts critiqued the works of choreographers from all over the state of Texas.

During daytime master classes held on Friday and Saturday, participants of all ages learned a variety of dance styles taught by teachers and professors from across Texas.

On Friday and Saturday evenings, the Ad Deum Dance Company also performed on the Performing Arts Center stage. Guests who attended the Saturday evening Gala Celebration Concert also enjoyed performances from the Corpus Christi Concert Ballet and the Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Island Dance Company.
