‘Evening of Pas de Deux’ showcases solo quality of NCDT dancers

North Carolina Dance Theatre prides its annual “Evening of Pas de Deux” on presenting a diverse array of duets, but this year, the performance will offer something really different: a solo.

NCDT dancer Melissa Anduiza will dance “Yapos at Paalum” — a solo she choreographed for a NCDT benefit in May — as part of the pas de deux performance at 8:15 tonight in the Amphitheater.

The title, “Yapos at Paalum,” is a Tagalog translation of “Embrace and Say Farewell,” the title of the music by Rachel Grimes that will accompany the piece.
