Dance Soup has been an annual tradition at the school for the past twenty years and features student-choreographed works.
Dance Soup provides students with the opportunity to practice the skills they learn in Improvisation and Dance Composition classes.  Many students begin developing their concepts already in the summer prior to school starting in September.  Through a lengthy process involving faculty acceptance of a student proposal which is due at the start of the school year, the auditioning of fellow classmates, setting rehearsal schedules, creation of a work, and attending mentoring sessions with faculty members, the student sharpens their leadership and choreographic skills. “The students also learn what it’s like to have their work critiqued throughout this process, ” says Weaver.  “We give them a lot of freedom for this concert to really explore the whole world of dance, and they really get the chance to express their individual voice and specialties.”
When asked why the name, Dance Soup?, Weaver explains,  “Just like soup is made from many varied ingredients, so is this concert; and those ingredients come together beautifully to make a complete and diverse show.”
