Orchesis, the student dance company at Allegheny College, will showcase the talents of its dancers in its annual recital on November 5-8 at 8 p.m. in Shafer Auditorium. Admission is free, and the program is family friendly.
Although all performances are open to the public, the show on November 5 has been designated the Community Premiere Show. Orchesis extends a special invitation to members of the Meadville community to join Allegheny faculty and staff and their families at the Wednesday performance.
Choreographed in its entirety by students, the show will feature a variety of dance forms, including ballet, musical theater, tap, jazz, contemporary, hip hop and ballroom pieces. The finale will be a dance performed by the entire troupe of about 100 dancers.
All aspects of the Orchesis show are designed or chosen by students, including choreography, lighting, costumes and make-up.
