Merge Touring Ensemble

Merge Dance Company is a faculty directed student dance company. We are committed to presenting interdisciplinary performances with an aesthetic that weaves social, political and communal dialogues with innovative approaches to artmaking for the University, and the community at large. The company consists of dedicated and gifted students who are seeking a career in the performance and choreography arena.


Featuring work by: Cuerpo Academico de Artes Escenicas de la Universidad de Morelia Mexico, Bernard Brown, Natalia Reza, as well as faculty Ana Baer and Christa Oliver. 


Since its inception in 2009, Merge has been providing pre-professional performance opportunities to our students, exposing them to current movement and choreographic influences from around the world, with most recent residencies in Port of Spain, Trinidad and London, England. Merge produces a yearly concert at the Harrison Theatre, and showcases work by local, regional and internationally renowned guest artists and faculty.
