Roger L. Dancz
Athens
   Roger L. Dancz, who directed University of Georgia bands for 36 years and hosted a popular statewide jazz radio program, died in Athens Sept. 1, 1998.
   Mr. Dancz, 68, died at St. Mary's Hospital following a brief illness. No formal funeral service will be held. A musical celebration of his life will be held later.
   Mr. Dancz became director of UGA's Redcoat Band in 1955 and is credited with building the group into one of the nation's top collegiate bands. He also started a jazz studies program at UGA, directed the university's symphonic band, and created a jazz festival and music festival that brought thousands of high school students to UGA.
   "By any standard, Roger Dancz was the foremost figure in the band movement in Georgia from 1955 to the present," said Dwight Satterwhite, UGA's current director of bands. "For the university's band program, and for band programs throughout the state, this is a deep personal and professional loss."
   Mr. Dancz created a weekly radio program of jazz music and commentary called "Invitation to Jazz" that was broadcast statewide over the Peach State Public Radio. The first program aired the week Athens public radio station WUGA went on the air in August 1987. Mr. Dancz subsequently broadcast more than 500 programs, missing only one because of illness.
   Born May 25, 1930, in Ludington, Mich., Mr. Dancz began playing trumpet when he was six years old. By the time he was 14, he had formed a nine-piece band that played at school dances.
   He received a bachelor's degree in music from Stetson University, where he was captain of the band, and a master's in music from George Peabody Teacher's College. He also studied trumpet under Everett Kissinger, Donald Yaxley and Robert Bays.
   Mr. Dancz came to UGA in 1955 after playing with the Third Army Band at Fort McPherson in Atlanta and writing arrangements for the Georgia Tech band. Twenty-five people showed up for his first rehearsal of the Redcoat Band.
   By the time he retired in 1991, the band included some 300 musicians, twirlers, dancers and support staff. During his tenure, the Redcoats made several records, appeared many times on national television at bowl games, and marched in President Jimmy Carter's Inaugural Parade in Washington, D.C.
   A hallmark of the Redcoats under Mr. Dancz was spectacular halftime shows at football games. Working with his late wife, Phyllis, who directed the twirling and dancing units, Mr. Dancz created shows marked by intricate marching formations, soaring music and colorful costumes and props.
   In the early 1970s, Mr. Dancz established a jazz studies program and formed several jazz performance groups. He directed Jazz Band I, which performed throughout Georgia. He also organized the Jazz Festival of Champions, an annual competition for high school bands that brought top professional jazz musicians to UGA as teachers and clinicians.
   He started an annual music festival, held each January, and a summer music workshop for high school students - programs that helped recruit many of the state's best high school musicians for UGA's band program.
   For many years, Mr. Dancz directed the UGA Symphonic Band, which performed classical and semi-classical music. He was nationally recognized as a pioneer in the programming of original music for wind instru ments.
   Thousands of students played in UGA bands during Mr. Dancz's tenure, and in 1974 he began giving them a chance to perform again in an alumni band. From an initial group of 130, the alumni band has grown to more than 300 musicians who perform at the Homecoming football game each year.
   Mr. Dancz served as president of the Georgia Music Educators Association, the southern division of the College Band Directors National Association, and the Georgia chapter of the International Association of Jazz Educators.
   He was president of the Georgia chapter of Phi Beta Mu music honor society and was elected to its Bandmasters Hall of Fame. He was a member of a number of other professional and honorary groups, and was listed in a number of biographies including "International Who's Who in Music," "Who's Who in Entertainment" and "Who's Who in the World."
   Survivors include his son, Steve, a professional musician, daughter-in-law Vicki and granddaughter Nicole, all of Athens; his mother, Viola Dancz, Ludington, Mich.; and a brother, Gary Dancz, also of Ludington.
   The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Roger Dancz Scholarship Fund and sent to the University of Georgia Foundation, 824 S. Milledge Ave., Athens, Ga. 30602.
   Bridges Funeral Home of Athens is in charge of arrangements.
