BLACK INK The essence of freedom is understanding m Black Student Movement Official Newspaper Vol. 17, No. 5. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill November 10, 1983 \ Opeyos Dane by Denise Moultri Staff Writer Peace. Opeyo. Dance: "An expres sion of emotion — a means of com munication to any and everyone. Dance can be love, joy or sorrow. It is an art. It is an attempt to create and to define an aesthetic ex perience—an expression of one's inner-self/' explains Vickie Sparrow, director of the Opeyo Dancers. On Friday, November 4, in their Annual Fall Invitational, the Opeyo Dancers put their definition of dance into motion. Each routine shed new light on the essence of dance. Their "warm-up" indicated that the night would be filled with many satisfying and unexpected sur prises. Their routine to "Roof Garden," choregraphed by Pam Phifer, was such a surprise. Each dancer had his nr her own part to play in a physical interpretation of the words and music. The Opeyo's third performance to "Rainbow," choreographed by Kim Spauding, was definitive. The words of the song — "When you see color, I see a rainbow" — indicates the diversity of the dancers' thoughts and emotions. "Arcade Funk," a routine choreographed by James Dempson and Sharon Parks, gave the audience a shock. Between the "yeahs" and the "wows", the "oohs" and the "ahhs", the audience sat glued to their seats for fear of missing any of the excitment of this routine. Other dance troupes performing were those from North Carolina Cen tral University and the University of North Carolina-Creensboro. Each of these troupes performed with an ex ceptional style and poise. UK €
