Performance opportunities are available to all BFA candidates, from the first year through the senior year. Auditions are held at the beginning of each semester for the DanceTCU faculty/guest artist concerts produced in Ed Landreth Auditorium. Concerts mix classical and contemporary works and there are four concert programs over the course of a weekend.
There are two concerts produced by the senior class each year, one in December and one in April. This second concert is the focal point of the capstone course for all BFA dance majors. Seniors choreograph works and then promote and produce their own concert in the Studio Theatre at Erma Lowe Hall.
Once each semester the SCCDance offers a Brown Bag concert, an informal presentation of student works in the Studio Theatre at Erma Lowe Hall. Students, faculty and staff come from across the campus with a sack lunch to enjoy the noon-time performance.
A tradition since 1993, Chi Tau Epsilon Honor Society produces a concert to benefit the AIDS Outreach Center (AOC) of Fort Worth and Tarrant County (see Our Community - Chi Tau Epsilon). DanceTCU works are always a part of this concert as are choreographies by artists from throughout the community. All proceeds go to the AOC.
And finally, TCU SCCDance attends the regional conference of the American College Dance Association each year, presenting works created by students, faculty, and guest artists in adjudicated concerts and other settings. DanceTCU work has been included in ten of the eleven most recent gala performances and was chosen to perform at the Kennedy Center for ACDA’s National Festival Gala in 2010.
