Geiger Contemporary Repertoire (GCR)

Learning choreography and performing is an integral part of the training process of a dancer. GCR will provide students with the opportunity to learn original contemporary choreography that will culminate in a Spring Dance Showcase. Rehearsals will be partnered with Contemporary classes taught by Assistant Director, Renee Mueller. There are no auditions for GCR, interested students will pay an annual $100 Membership Fee and are required to regularly attend specific classes.

The goal is to examine the process of creation through the art of choreography.
