ULM Dance Repertory Ensemble, Fall 2021


The Repertory Dance Ensemble is a semi-professional company comprised of students at ULM. The Repertory Dance Ensemble has the unique opportunity to perform in various dance forms for two mainstage concerts during the year, including faculty, guest, and student choreography. Dancers also have outside performance opportunities throughout the year, the opportunity to participate in the American College Dance Association annual conference, and adjudication concerts in the South Region. Students are also considered for a VAPA Talent Grant. Dancers are selected for the Repertory Dance Ensemble by a bi-yearly audition process. 



The mission of the ULM Dance Repertory Ensemble is to develop art, artists, and an audience for all forms of dance through education, creative experiences, and performances. Performances include but are not limited to: the departmental Fusion Dance Concerts, VAPA sponsored programs as well as University events. Students are selected for the program by a bi-yearly audition process. Involvement allows students to develop skills in choreographic design, dance style, movement quality, and musicality, all under performance conditions. Works choreographed by faculty, guest artists, and students in the primary concert dance forms of ballet, modern, jazz, and tap are produced, allowing for a diverse and moving performance season.
