Performance Opportunities for Students

The Program in Dance offers several performance opportunities for students each year including the annual Princeton Dance Festival, Performance Lab, auditions with guest choreographers, and student senior thesis performances.

 

PRINCETON DANCE FESTIVAL RE-IMAGINED

How can we create new methods of dance and choreography for the online environment that reimagine frontiers of physical practice and the choreographic space? Students enrolled in DAN 324: “Princeton Dance Festival Re-Imagined” for Fall 2020 took a unique venture into dance and choreographic creation culminating in a live, virtual Performance Festival. Led by professional choreographers Dean Moss, Rebecca Lazier, Francesca Harper, Silas Riener, and Olivier Tarpaga, students explored the intersections of dance and multimedia performance, digital animation, filmmaking, site-specific theater and art, or music.

In this video, discover how the Program in Dance reimagined its annual Princeton Dance Festival for a socially distanced world during a global pandemic with the help of faculty, choreographers, and participating students living throughout the United States and abroad.
