ULM Dance Repertory Ensemble, Spring 2019
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; University musicals and operas; and VAPA sponsored programs as well as University events. Students are selected to 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.
