Terpsichore Auditions

62348_10202732183533252_556633318_nFrom Stellar Levy ’15:

Terpsichore is bigger and badder than ever this semester and is looking for dancers (and choreographers) of all types, sizes, and experience levels to be part of an amazing dance community and performance!

The Terpsichore show is an extremely unique showcase of student  dancing and choreography that occurs each semester. Any student can choose to choreograph a dance and will present a short phrase at the auditions. Anyone at the audition can try out for any and all pieces! Dances have included Dracula’s Wedding, Space Jam, ballet, modern dance, 80s workout videos, and some great hip-hop.

If you can’t make it to the auditions and want to participate in Terp this semester, OR you have any questions, please contact us at ctong[at]wesleyan[dot]edu or srwilliams[at]wesleyan[dot]edu
