An Evening of Dance
Members of Orchesis Modern Dance Company study modern technique and choreography in preparation for An Evening of Dance, presented each Spring.
Rehearsals for this concert begin in November and continue through March. Choreographers are chosen on the basis of experience, interest, and coursework completed in dance composition. They work closely with the faculty advisors through regularly scheduled critique sessions. Choreographers begin work early in the year and are responsible for choreographing movement, selecting sound (or collaborating with a composer), creating the costumes, and teaching their movement to the dancers. Once on stage, they also work closely with the lighting designer for their piece.
