Dance Repertory Company

Auditioning for the company is a requirement (as well as an opportunity!) for dance majors who are fulfilling rehearsal and performance expectations for the Dance program. Auditions are held the first week of the Fall semester and rehearsals begin immediately. The company's three annual concerts are held respectively in the MSU Dance Theatre, Alexander Kasser Theatre and Memorial Auditorium on campus.
