UDC Auditions

Student dancers in rehearsal

Spring 2022

University Dance Company

Choreographers examine the notion of “Insider/Outsider” in modern/contemporary, hip hop and ballet works exploring the complexities of how the binary (exclusion and inclusion) is constructed and the ways it shapes our lives. The Department’s Choreographic Fellow Gabrielle Lamb presents her work "Tessellations," a contemporary dance set to playful, Parisian cafe music. A Guggenheim Fellow (2020) and Princess Grace Award winner (2014), Lamb is a New York City-based choreographer and founder of Pigeonwing Dance. Faculty choreographers will also present original works.
