Eastfield Dance Company

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 of education, creating a hardworking, committed company. The Eastfield Dance Company 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. The Company also hosts Dance and Snack, a free outdoor lunchtime concert series that features work from our student choreographers and guest artists.

Students in the Eastfield Dance Company must enroll in Dance Performance, and are encouraged to also enroll in a dance technique course. With the 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. The Company 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, The Danielle Georgiou Dance Group, Kiera Amison of Muscle Memory Dance Theatre, Melissa Sanderson, Meredith Knight, Sarah Matzke, Christie Nelson, Claire Augustine, Elisa De La Rosa, Yeajean Choi, Brandon Gonzalez, and Jennifer Mabus. In 2015, faculty member Melissa Sanderson created the Faculty Dance Concert, during which faculty members and invited professionals create and premiere original works of choreography.

Students are also given the chance to produce their own choreography. They audition work and are supervised by faculty members.
