Dance Creative Opportunities

Dance ISU provides both curricular and co-curricular performance opportunities for our students.

Throughout the year, the Department of Theatre and Dance regularly produces 4 mainstage productions including the faculty and guest artist dance performances that range from repertory dance concerts to evening length works of dance theatre, physical theatre and contemporary ballets.

Dance ISU also regularly collaborates with the Music Department on musical theatre productions as well as various concerts with the Percussion Ensemble, ISU Bands and ISU Choirs.

Student organized clubs such as Danson, APO, Swing Kids, Latin Club and more enjoy very active seasons as well.

Each year, Dance ISU attends the regional American College Dance Festival in March where students may perform in faculty works, have their own choreography performed and take classes from professional dance artists across the United States and abroad. In 2008 and 2010, choreographic works from ISU were chosen for the Gala Concerts in the region and selected for the ACDF National Gala Performance in New York and Washington D.C.
