A CSU dance tradition since 1987!

The Student Dance Concert is unique because it is completely choreographed, produced and directed by students. Senior dance students Cecilia McNeel, Thomas Phelan and Anna Roehr are in charge of producing this spring’s show, each having created their own works, alongside submissions from many other student choreographers.

An exploration of choreography

The concert provides an opportunity for student dancers to explore their choreographic technique. “It’s exciting to see works from new choreographers as well as watch how the juniors and seniors have grown since they were freshmen,” said Roehr. “This concert showcases how diverse and strong our program has become.”

There are eighteen unique dances featured in the show, several prepared by students from CSU’s Choreography I class which requires them to choreograph a piece for the concert. Through solos, duets, and ensemble productions, a wide variety of dance styles are represented by the other choreographers, including hip hop, contemporary, blues, and Fosse jazz.

“The show demonstrates our talents and interests, allowing us to explore what we can do through choreography,” said McNeel. “It is going to be a very diverse and exciting performance,” she added.
