Serving as their MFA Thesis show, LIMINAL PATHS is a collaborative effort between six graduating choreographers. With two separate programs of original choreography.
The University of Arizona School of Dance offers ballet, modern and jazz dance with strong and equal emphasis. Dance majors are required to study all three disciplines and have the opportunity to experience working closely with outstanding faculty and guest artists, all of whom are nationally and internationally known teachers and choreographers. The UA Dance Ensemble is comprised of BFA and MFA students, privileged to perform in the state-of-the-art performance facility; The Stevie Eller Dance Theatre. It is through performing that students are fully able to integrate and apply what they have learned in the classroom. The UA Dance Ensemble has appeared with world-class musicians from the School of Music, Arizona Choir, UA Symphony Orchestra, UA Jazz Ensemble, and the Tucson Symphony Orchestra. Faculty and students frequently collaborate with other departments on campus, including Music, Theater, Art, Media Arts, Architecture and the Sciences to create work that transcends the traditional choreographic realm.
