Dance Department's annual Kloepper Concert featuring student work Dec. 2-3

November 20, 2017

The UW-Madison Dance Department presents its annual Kloepper Concert, a studio performance of new student work, Dec. 2-3.

The concert takes place in the historic Louise Kloepper Studio, room 549 of Lathrop Hall.

Ten student choreographers -- Nolan Elsbecker, Amanda Graziano, Julianna Hom, Kimi McKissic, Jessica Robling, Megan Schimke, Bailey Seymour, Jenny Smith, Alice Svetic and Kaitlin Verchimak -- will present a mix of solo and ensemble works Saturday, Dec. 2 at 8 p.m., followed by a matinee performance on Sunday, Dec. 3 at 2:30 pm.

Kloepper ConcertTwo of the dance works to be presented in this concert, Amanda Graziano’s group work, “This Attachment,” and Kimi McKissic’s solo, “John 3:16. Lost in Translation,” were selected by the faculty to represent the Dance Department and UW-Madison at the American College Dance Association (ACDA) North-Central  conference.

ACDA is an annual three-day conference, which supports and recognizes dance in higher education and provides students a unique opportunity for their works to be adjudicated by a panel of nationally recognized dance professionals. This year, Graziano and McKissic will present their work here in Madison on March 21-25. 

The concert will also feature an ensemble piece from the First Year Workshop, a collaborative piece from first-year dance degree students directed by Associate Professor Kate Corby, who is chair of the Dance Department. The work is developed over the fall semester culminating in performance for this concert. 

Tickets are $10, cash only, and can only be purchased in advance of the show. Seating is very limited. Ticket sales will take place in the lobby of Lathrop Hall during the following days/times:
