In addition to classes, workshops, informal showings, and student choreography concerts, dance students have the opportunity to perform with the GVSU Dance Company.
The Dance Company performs the works of faculty and guest artists, along with select student works, in two annual mainstage performances. These concerts are held in the Louis Armstrong Theatre on the GVSU Allendale campus. Keep an eye on our events calendar to see when you can join us.
