MSU Orchesis Dance company’s annual concert almost here

On The Margins, this year’s Orchesis Dance annual concert will take place at the Arena Theater located in the MSU Auditorium, from March 31st to April 2nd. With choreographers such as former So You Think You Can Dance star, Billy Bell, the Chair of the Dance Department from Colorado University, Erika Randall, and MSU’s Professor of Global Diversity in Dance, Rosely Conz, On The Margins will also feature four pieces brought by MSU students.

Currently, around 40 students are part of Orchesis Dance, from different majors throughout the campus. Each piece will bring together different perspectives and backgrounds to dance choreography. Whether it’s navigating through feelings of exclusion and vulnerability, or just slowly starting to discover little things that can make us feel joy, the audience will definitely identify with On The Margins unique takes on life.

About the dance company

Orchesis Dance is a modern dance company and the only dance organization on campus that is sponsored by the Department of Theatre at Michigan State University. Each year Orchesis presents a concert in the spring composed of choreographies the company has been working during the academic year.

“We are sponsored by the Department of Theatre at MSU, so not only some of the pieces were choreographed by students, but we also had colleagues graciously designing lights and costumes. On The Margins will take place in an arena style theater or ‘in the round’, allowing the audience to view the concert from any angle desired”, says student Elspeth Muzzin.
