Individual and collective visions

While the showcase is a thesis project for the four dance majors, the capstone event would not be possible without the collaboration of over thirty talented dancers, lighting designers, and technicians, creating a unique show that represents their individual and collective visions.

“The show is truly inspired by our time and experiences at Colorado State,” said senior Mackenzie Buffer. “The individuality of each piece highlights our unique abilities and creative minds, distinguishing this show as truly our own,” she said.

Passionate and inventive choreography

Patrons will experience passionate and inventive choreography that highlights the graduating seniors, while promising an exciting look at the dance program’s up-and-coming performing artists.
