The students and guest artists of Orchesis—a 20-member ensemble—have been working hard all semester to create original pieces and participated in one large ensemble work.

The show attracted around 60 people over the three days of performances.

Orchesis members shared that they constantly tried to put a message to their pieces, which could range from states of the world to personal struggles and emotions. They consider dancing not only as entertainment but also a way to express their feelings.

Megan Mizanty, Orchesis’s new director, played a very important role in preparing for this semester’s show.

When asked about her favorite part of the new position, Mizanthy said, “I love being able to watch students grow during the semester. I love to see their transformation individually and also within the whole Orchesis family.”
