POCATELLO — Renowned dance artist and educator William “Bill” Evans is currently teaching Idaho State University dance students through an artist-in-residence program through Oct. 20.

Evans will also lead a free community dance workshop on Oct. 13 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Red Hill Building. The workshop will feature sections on Barteneiff Fundamentals, modern technique and tap. The workshop is for dancers ages 16 and older. Interested dancers can contact Kathy Diehl at diehkath@isu.edu.

The residency and workshop are funded through the Bistline Foundation, and partly through the ISU Cultural Events Committee.

Evans is distinguished professor emeritus at the University of New Mexico and professor emeritus at the College of Brockport, SUNY. He has taught at Dean College and Providence College since his retirement from Brockport in 2014. He danced, choreographed and served as artistic coordinator with Repertory Dance Theatre from 1967 through 1974, and has since created or reconstructed 19 works for that company.
