Photo of the Day: The art of performing


By Athena Chrysanthou

Members of the Southern Illinois Dance Company finish a dance routine Thursday during a rehearsal in Furr Auditorium.

The rehearsal was in preparation for the SIDC’s “In Concert” performance which, holds its final performance at 2 p.m. Saturday in the auditorium. The concert is comprised of jazz, contemporary, ballet and hip-hop routines.

SIDC is primarily choreographed by SIU students, as well as artistic director and advisor Lori Merrill-Fink, who is also the director of the University Honors Program. SIU alumna Andrea Hernandez has been part of the SIDC for more than four years.


“When I was in school, the SIDC was my relax time,” Hernandez said. “I am really excited for the show, as it might be my last one.”
