The Purchase Dance Company’s Fall Concert features an exciting and diverse range of world premieres and renowned repertory works in order to showcase the dynamic range of the company’s professional caliber students and reflect the Conservatory’s stature as a leading center for world-class dance training.

We are thrilled to present seminal choreographer Trisha Brown’s Groove and Countermove (2000), a postmodern masterpiece.  Celebrated Guggenheim Fellow Andrea Miller, Artistic Director of GALLIM dance, will keep the audience riveted with SAMA (2019), a dramatic contemporary work. Two exciting commissions have enabled our students to be an integral part of the creative process as our guest choreographers bring their visions to the stage.  Dance alum Jenelle Figgins, a Princess Grace Fellow, will present SPREAD (2021), a poetic contemporary ballet work first commissioned for our Dance majors during the height of the pandemic. Rounding out the program, innovative duo, and current Conservatory of Dance faculty members, Hollis Bartlett & Dance alum Nattie Trogdon, will premiere Phantasm, a dynamic contemporary piece, created expressly for this season.

The performance on Friday, December 8 will be preceded by an Artist Talk at 7:15pm.
