The Dance Ensemble provides an opportunity for student choreographers and dancers to challenge themselves artistically and physically as they pursue their various academic paths. This year’s concert features an eclectic mix of dance styles ranging from classical ballet to tribal inspired movement. It contains original pieces conceived and choreographed by Valpo students and faculty.
“What started as a very small student run organization more than 16 years ago has grown and evolved into the group of dedicated young men and women you will see performing this year,” said Ann Kessler, director of the Dance Ensemble. “It is their energy, creativity, and willingness to strive for something more than themselves that inspires the next generation of Valpo Dance Ensemble members and me.”
