Dance Productions

The Dance program aspires to create meaningful, engaging new art that reflects color-disruptive and/or color-conscious casting within its productions. The program does not believe in a generalized approach to decisions about race, ethnicity, and diversity in casting.  In casting, we seek to embrace and celebrate difference always, and to disrupt tradition often. We eschew tokenism.  Where possible, we consider the cultural backgrounds and life experiences of our dancers in the casting process.  We recognize that because casting is not necessarily rooted within the diversity of our current student population, our need to affirmatively recruit and promote dancers of color within our program is underscored.
