Chris Eaton to Appear with 180 Dance Company

180 Dance Company continues their season with Music & Motion featuring guest musician Chris Eaton on November 20, 2010 at 7:30 p.m. at J.R. Fugett Middle School in West Chester, PA.

180 Dance Company is pleased to present this evening of dance and live music. “To depict powerful music like this through dance is a challenge and an honor,” states artistic director Kelly Murray. “The combination of lyrics and movement together heightens the emotional impact of each song. For this show, I wanted to bring an intimate quality to the movement by having a different dancer choreograph to each song. The end result is a more personal, vulnerable experience.”

Since the early 1980s, Chris Eaton has been building a profile as one of Britain’s classic songwriters. His unique brand of ‘white soul’ song writing has made him a favorite of the world’s pop aristocracy. His music has had an incredible run of No.1 radio hits in the US while artists such as Jordan Sparks, Jessica Simpson, Amy Grant, Janet Jackson, Jaci Velasquez, Rachel Lampa, Cliff Richard, and Wayne Watson have covered his work.

In support of the newly founded 180 Dance Company, Mr. Eaton will be visiting from the UK to play some of his hit songs for the Greater Philadelphia area. Musical accompaniment will be provided by the KODJ musicians while 180 Dance Company has set choreography to ‘Lay It Down,’ ‘Love Divine,’ and ‘Christ the Lord Is Risen Today,’ by company members Diana Jewell, Kelly Murray, and Cara Desert, respectively. This is a unique opportunity for cross-genre disciplines to share an evening of entertainment together.
