Orchesis Dance Company

Orchesis Dance Company


ORCHESIS provides Dance Classes and Dance Instruction For All Students!

Orchesis is open to any interested Male or Female willing to dedicate time and a concentrated effort to learn the structured discipline of Dance.

In preparation for such training and performances, members of the organization spend 5 to 7 days each week practicing ballet, modern and jazz techniques, learning choreography, auditioning and rehearsing for scheduled engagements. They also attend workshops to keep abreast of current styles and techniques. Each member is provided an opportunity to continuously seek exposure for growth by attending concerts and taking classes at other studios. We have been fortunate in exposing our students to the likes of: The Alvin Ailey American Dance Center, Twin City Ballet Company, Joe Tramine Dance Convention, Dance Theatre of Harlem, Louisiana Dance Foundation, The Dallas Black Dance Theatre and The Gus Giordano Jazz Dance Chicago.

Our goal is to develop your skills to a level consistent with the reputation enjoyed by Grambling State University Orchesis Dance Company, on the Sports Field and on the Theatre Stage.

Orchesis Dance Company is an organization where you con improve and advance your dance skills. Join us at Grambling State University, “A Place Where Everybody is Somebody”.
