Orchesis Dance Ensemble to Present Annual Fall Performance

By Wilson Marketing and Communications

The Wilson College modern dance ensemble, Orchesis, will present its annual fall performance on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 11 and 12, in Wilson’s Appenzellar-Buchanan Dance Studio in Davison Hall. Performances will be held at 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, with a Saturday matinee at 1 p.m., followed by a question-and-answer session.

The performance of “Dancers on the Edge” will include an array of duets, solos, trios and group dances choreographed by Wilson College faculty and students. Among the works making premieres are an interdisciplinary duet that explores color and emotion; a 14-person ensemble celebrating feminine beauty in stillness; and a fun-loving trio of ballerinas-turned-Shania Twain dancers.

The performances are open to the public. Tickets will be available at the door; however, seating is limited so reservations are encouraged. To reserve seats, contact Wilson Visiting Assistant Professor of Dance Megan Mizanty at megan.mizanty@wilson.edu.


General admission – $10

Students with I.D. and children under 12 – $3
