What better time than Valentine’s Day for a ZUZI! Dance Company “No Frills Dance Happenin’: Gotta Have HeART!”

Performers from Tucson and southern Arizona are gathering to share their innovative works through a wide range of dance styles. In fact, some are still works in progress. As is tradition, the Friday program is the Adult Choreographers Showcase and Saturday is Youth Night.

On tap for Friday’s Dance Happenin’ for independent local artists is The Human Project, Mirasol, Movement Salon, Elizabeth Breck, Carie Schneider and dance projects by students from the University of Arizona.

The dance company also will showcase a piece titled “The Western Desert,” which is part of the rock opera “Like A Lotus Resting in the Fire” now being prepared for a world premiere May 15. This is the first time in six years that ZUZI! has previewed a work in progress.

Youth Night is a showcase of energetic participants, including a hip-hop club from University High School, El Graves from the Human Project, Acro Yoga, belly dancing, the Utterback Middle School dance team, ZUZI’s Many Limbs youth aerial company and modern dance choreography performed by members of the company.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
