See Photos from Fall Student Dance Concerts

A highlight of each semester is the Dance Department's presentation of student-created concerts.

All of the works were created and danced by Hope students, who also designed and created their own costumes and sound/music scores. The students were mentored by the concert co-producers, dance faculty members Steven Iannacone and Matthew Farmer, and assisted with lighting and technical design by staff member Erik Alberg, who is the college's technical director for the performing arts, and the students of the Production I class.

The students who submit work to be adjudicated by the judging panel range from dance majors and minors, to students in dance composition classes, to students who have danced through their entire high school career but are pursuing a different major. As a result, the concerts highlight what students are learning and experimenting with at Hope in the field of dance and showcase a variety of dance forms.
