Treat yourself to a live in-person performance with original choreography created by our world-class MFA in dance candidates and performed by our undergraduate students! The Department of Dance graduate students, all of whom have had no less than eight years of professional dance experience, work with selected undergraduate students to compose six conceptually and aesthetically diverse works. This year’s MFA candidates include artists who have worked with some of the world’s most distinguished dance groups, touring nationally and internationally, including but not limited to BANDALOOP, Dance Art Group (DAG), The Límon Dance Company, Martha Graham Dance Company, Merce Cunningham Trust, Stuart Pimsler Dance & Theater, and 10 Hairy Legs. Mark your calendars for this exciting evening of dance!
