Psychology and movement intersect when California University’s Department of Music and Theatre presents “Self Actualization:  A Concert of Dance” at 8 p.m. April 21-23 in Steele Hall Mainstage Theatre.

Choreographers delve into psychologist Abraham Maslow’s theory that individuals are motivated by a “hierarchy of needs” on their journeys to self-actualization.

Each piece in this concert explores the individual struggle as one seeks to reach his or her full potential. Many of the dances explore mature themes that are best viewed with adult supervision.

The public is welcome to attend Cal U’s spring dance concert. Visitor parking is available in the Vulcan Garage, off Third Street near the campus entrance.
