Student Choreography Showcase

Thursday, October 17, 2019
12:00 pm
ABAA Studio 2

The BAYE Student Choreography Program connects ABAA dancers in new ways, as they learn from their peers and collaborate on projects.  In this application-based program, each student choreographer is connected with a faculty mentor, dancers, rehearsal space, and technical support to create original art.

BAYE students are encouraged to take part in at least one student choreography piece as a dancer during the year. This provides an excellent opportunity to learn new choreography, perform more, and support each other as fellow artists. The Student Choreography Showcase is a great way to see and support these emerging artists.

The Student Choreography Showcase also features previews of some pieces in the spring BAYE Concert!
