The Eastfield Dance Company consists of students who share a love for dancing and performing. The dancers balance their passion for the performing arts with their value for education, creating a hardworking, committed company. EDC has committed itself to promoting dance at the college, as well as in the outside community, participating in various activities on campus, including Black History Month, Women’s History Month, Cinco de Mayo celebrations, and being a part of the Drama department’s musicals.
Students in EDC are enrolled in either Rehearsal and Performance classes, or in Composition (Choreography). Students are strongly encouraged to enroll in additional technique classes. With the Eastfield Dance Company, students have the chance to work with faculty members and guest artists to produce the Fall and Spring dance concerts.
In 2013, Program Coordinator Danielle Georgiou started the Dance Department’s Guest Artist Residency program that has invited professional dancers and dance companies to Eastfield to participate in short-term residency projects with the Eastfield Dance Company. EDC has had the pleasure of working with Whitney Boomer and Big Rig Dance Collective, Antonio Arrebola and Delilah Buitron of the Dallas Flamenco Festival, Emilie Skinner and Dallas Neo-Classical Ballet, DGDG (the Danielle Georgiou Dance Group), Kiera Amison of Muscle Memory Dance Theatre, and Melissa Sanderson.
Students are also given the chance to produce their own choreography. They audition work and are supervised by faculty members.
