“The Outlet” Embraces a Variety of Dance Styles

by Xiaomeng Li

Orchesis will sponsor a dance performance that features dance styles other than modern dance. It calls for student choreographers to join and plans to present a performance called “The Outlet” in April.

Express Yourself

Jenna Jamison ‘12, an organizing member of Orchesis, says that, “We want Wilson students to have a chance to express themselves through other forms of dance since Orchesis is only modern.”

Orchesis officers will help organize “The Outlet.” Paul Kellinger, advisor of Orchesis and Prof. of Dance, said in her all-campus email that, “This is an effort by Orchesis to respond to and support students’ desire to make work in forms other than modern/post modern.”

Any student who has a desire to choreograph dances other than modern/post modern style can join the performance by contacting Jamison.

Auditions To Be Held Soon

“Closer to the show, they will be auditioning their dance to a panel of judges in order to get their dance in the show,” says Jamison, “they don’t have to show up to anything. However, we strongly suggest that they set up a weekly schedule for rehearsals with their dancers so it will be well performed at the audition,” Jamison added.
