The end of the semester is approaching and so is the Dance department’s semi-annual show: Dear Diary . This concert presented by the Salem Dance Ensemble (SDE) showcases most, if not all, of Salem State’s dance majors and minors. Throughout the semester, students created their pieces and received guidance from faculty members including Meghan McLyman, Jim Morrow, and Betsy Miller. Some faculty members will also present their own work in the showcase. Though the pieces may range in genre from hip-hop to lyrical, tap, or ballet, most are typically in the contemporary style.
Since September, SDE has been creating our Fall show. We will be performing in the Multipurpose Room of O’Keefe at 7:30pm on Saturday, December 10th and 2:00pm on Sunday, December 11th. Though the performance is free to students with an SSU ID, there is a $10 suggested donation upon entrance for non-SSU students.
Dear Diary, Today I discovered…. Salem Dance Ensemble presents a program of choreography by students and faculty that reflects moments in our daily lives that are both mundane and extraordinary. Dear Diary investigates how those quotidian moments reveal our inner lives and intimate stories. Come share with us as we tell all!
Though SDE is composed primarily of majors and minors, we welcome other students with dance experience. If you are a student that finds yourself wanting to be on stage (even if you don’t have any experience), consider auditioning for SDE next semester! If you’re interested, keep an eye out for our open dancer auditions in September. If you have any questions, please contact one of our Dance Program Associates who can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org, we would be happy to have you!
