Purchase Dance Company Fall Concert 

Join the Conservatory of Dance for a dynamic 2017-2018 season presented by the Purchase Dance Company!  Our rich and varied performances feature cutting-edge premieres alongside exquisitely re-staged masterworks and showcase the unbridled talent and technical virtuosity of our professional caliber students.   

The Fall 2017 concert shines a spotlight on two 20th century masters – George
Balanchine and Merce Cunningham. Balanchine’s renowned Concerto Barocco (1948) can be described as music made visible – a pristine choreographic response to Johann Sebastian Bach’s score. Meanwhile, Cunningham’s acclaimed Change of Address (1992) epitomizes the choreographer’s ground-breaking use of chance operations. Finally, the Conservatory of Dance is delighted to commission a new work by Deborah Lohse, a groundbreaking NYC based choreographer and filmmaker.
