For one hour, this Saturday, April 5, nine dancers and three musicians will take to the rink at Skateland in Savoy, and embark on a live musical exploration and improvise their physical movement. According to their website, they will “share the impulses and intersections of a journey to free joy of the body, mind, and spirit.” Brought to fruition by University of Illinois Dance major and BFA Dance candidate, Kinsey McCartor, “Precision Not Required” is a site specific group thesis performance. Outside of dancing, Cosmology, a new musical trio assembled by local trumpeter, Christopher Moors, will also perform and improvise.
“Precision Not Required” begins at 4:30 p.m. Admission is absolutely free and all ages are welcome. Prior to the performance, however, Skateland will have open skating from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., and again following the performance at 7 p.m. until 10 p.m., $8 with a minor admission fee of $5.50 and $8, respectively. Skate rental is an additional fee of $2 for regular skates and $4 for speed or inline skates. Skateland Roller Skating Center is in Savoy, south of Champaign and Urbana, on 208 W. Curtis Rd.
