Orchesis Dance Company


           Orchesis Dance Company is a student-led modern dance company at Texas State University. It is composed of dance and non-dance majors who audition in the fall. Orchesis provides dancers with a home to build long lasting friendships as well as a place in which they challenge their creativity to broaden their view of art. The company is challenged with a rigourous rehearsal schedule that meets on a weekly basis. They work on not only perfecting technique but discovering their inner artist. The company works towards an annual production. Orchesis company members join their creative minds to offer the most original and unique work as well as collaboratating with guest choreographers to offer only the best from their creative abilities. 

           In the off-season, the company invites guest artists to teach master classes, which range from musical theatre, ballet, hip-hop, flamenco, yoga, and the always highly anticipated African drum classes. Orchesis Dance Company also takes part in the continuing growth of Texas State University and the San Marcos community.They participate in volunteering in Bobcat Build, donating and sponsoring scholarships among the company and devoting their most genuine support and efforts to the Dance Division.
