Dance Works performing "Parallel Universe" in Dillard Theatre

Dance Works is a troupe of 15-20 dancers who perform ballet, modern, jazz, tap, Broadway and contemporary styles choreographed by our faculty, students and guest artists.

Dance Works prepares one concert each year for performance in the Dillard Theatre. Upper level dance students may propose and, if approved, choreograph their own pieces for performance in the concerts.

Auditions are held at the beginning of every semester, and are open to all students. If you have questions, please email Megan Emanuel, director of dance, at
