Coker Repertory Dance Company is a year-long course designed for sophomores and freshmen that offers a pre-professional dance company experience.
Students have the opportunity to learn choreography from both faculty and guest artists, and perform these pieces throughout the year at different venues both on-campus and off.
This class provides students not only with a variety of performance opportunities, but also the experience of working in a collaborative process that mirrors being in a company in the current dance field. In addition, the students will learn choreography from a range of dance styles and the interworking of different creative processes. Dancers develop specific skills, competencies, and points-of-view needed by professionals in the field most closely related to this course. The dancers will acquire skills to work together as a group to learn choreography, problem solve, apply feedback, and rehearse as a united team.
The Coker Repertory Dance Company is directed by Kristin Hapke.
