Dance Theatre Group
For those interested in dance as a performance art, and who wish to perform, choreograph, or learn about stage production, there is the Dance Theatre Group (DTG). DTG is a student organization advised and supervised by Micki Taylor-Pinney with assistance from two other dance faculty, Ann Brown Allen and guest artist, Brian Feigenbaum. DTG's purpose is to create opportunities for the study and enjoyment of all forms of dance and dance production. Serious dancers who have opted for a liberal arts education or dance enthusiasts who have chosen dance as their extracurricular activity are welcome to join.

How Can I Get Involved?
- Choreographer - If you want
to choreograph, just say so! If you need dancers you can
announce the number of dancers you need and the type of
movement your piece will focus on (modern, lyrical, ballet,
experimental or jazz) so those considering your piece have
an idea of what is expected. Rehearsal space and time is
scheduled through the Dance department. Faculty and student
choreographers typically schedule two to three hour weekly
rehearsals for work to be presented in the concert. We ask
that choreographers spend one semester in DTG before making
work for the company and that they select music without
- Dancer - If you want to dance
just let the choreographers know that you are available
and are interested in their piece. Please remember that
once you agree to be in a piece, it is a commitment and
you are expected to be at each rehearsal!
- Production crew - DTG allows
you to learn about concert production. You can assist with
promotions, box office, ushering, or be a back stage hand.
Dance Theatre Group is funded in part by the Undergraduate
Student Fee and in part by membership dues of $25 per semester
