Strutters to perform at Strahan Coliseum

STAFF REPORT

The Texas State University Strutters precision dance team are hosting the ninth annual Strutters Spectacular Spring Show on April 17 and 18 at Strahan Coliseum. The shows begin at 7 p.m. on both Friday and Saturday. Tickets to the event will be $10 for general admission and $7 for Texas State students with their current student ID.Strahan Coliseum will be transformed into a draped amphitheater with high-tech lighting as the Strutters present an evening of music and dance equivalent to a “Broadway” show. The diverse talents of the Strutters will be showcased through routines ranging from hip hop, stylistic jazz, high kick, lyrical, contemporary, and funk to modern music.

Founded in 1960, the world-renowned 79-member precision dance team under the direction of Susan Angell-Gonzalez served as ambassadors for the City of San Marcos and Texas State University for nearly 50 years.

Last summer, the Strutters out-performed hundreds of acts to reach the live semifinal round of competition in the NBC network television program, “America’s Got Talent”. Earlier this year, they traveled to Chile for an extensive performance tour during Spring Break and have previously performed at professional football and basketball games, car races, rodeos, two U.S. Presidential inaugurations and the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade.

If you need special accommodations or for further information, please contact the Strutters Office at 245-2600 / SA10@txstate.edu.
