The Semaphore Repertory Dance Company provides advanced dance students with an intensive opportunity to develop as performers in professional level dances. Skills to be honed are: the dancer as “tool” and contributor to the process of art making; defining individual technical and expressive gifts; working in a variety of new technical and philosophical dance frameworks. In addition to regular training during the academic terms, participation in a “preseason” rehearsal period before fall term is required. A few pieces of student choreography will be accepted for repertory.
The group produces an annual concert, performs in the Twin Cities and makes dance exchanges with other college groups, which includes participation in the American College Dance Festival. Audition required.
