Each year, the Koshare dance concert is one of the most anticipated and well attended events on campus. This year, the concert includes 22 dances, each choreographed by a Hobart or William Smith student, and more than 120 dancers. With pieces ranging from tap to jazz, contemporary to hip hop, it’s a performance not to be missed.
“The Koshare concert is an event where students who have never been to a dance concert can go and really have fun,” says Rebecca Borsuk ’11, current President of the Koshare Board. “There’s hip hop, there’s jazz, there’s something for everyone; it’s an accessible show that is about community.”
Admission to the event is free and the concert runs about two and a half hours, including a 15 minute intermission. The first performance will take place Friday, Nov. 19 at 7:30 p.m. in the Winn-Seeley Gym-Theatre. There will also be matinee and evening showings Saturday, Nov. 20 at 2 and 7:30 p.m. Previous events have drawn standing room only crowds, so be sure to arrive early!
The Koshare Dance Collective is a student run organization that gives students the opportunity to dance, regardless of experience. Students are responsible for every aspect of the annual dance concert – from choreographing, to sound, lighting, and stage managing.
