Alive with Dance & Emerging Choreographers Series

Alive with Dance (AWD)

Alive With Dance is a Registered Student Organization (RSO) which presents annual spring concerts in Bowker Auditorium on the UMass Amherst campus, featuring choreographic work of seniors dance majors. Completely student-run and with support from RSO and the UMass Arts Council, AWD provides students with experience as performers, choreographers, backstage crew and publicists. Students learn all aspects of creating a terrific show.

Emerging Choreographers’ Series (ECS)

AWD also sponsors the Emerging Choreographers' Series, usually in April, which features work by Freshmen, Sophomores and Juniors.

Informal Dance Concerts

These concerts often take place near the end of the semester and feature new choreography by students and/or faculty.
