College of Charleston SCHOOL OF THE ARTS

Chapel Moves Dance Concert Choreographed by Students

The Department of Theatre and Dance in the College of Charleston School of the Arts will present the dance concert, Chapel Moves. The annual performance features original dances by some of the department’s most talented students. These future professional choreographers and aspiring dance artists will showcase pieces selected for inclusion in the American College Dance Association’s southeastern regional conference.

Exploring how the body, mind, and spirit can be challenged and influenced by the world around us, the choreographers have created an evening of dance showcasing the diversity and strength of the dance students. The choreographers have challenged their casts with technical movement phrases and complex music, pushing the performance of the dance pieces both physically and emotionally.

The performance will run April 5-8, 2018 and will take place at the Chapel Theatre, 172 Calhoun St. Showtimes are at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Friday, and Sunday and 2:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are $15 for the general public; $10 for senior citizens and College of Charleston students and employees. Tickets can be purchased online at, by emailing, or by calling (843) 953-6306.
