The Dance Company of Middlebury

The Dance Company of Middlebury (DCM) is an essential component of our advanced studio course offerings.  It is a credit-bearing course, open by audition to sophomores through seniors,  that requires two semesters of participation for one academic credit.  DCM reinvents itself every year under the direction of a different dance faculty member or guest artist and offers our students opportunities to explore collaborative, interdisciplinary, and community engagement projects through dance.  Typically, the company develops a concert of new work during the fall and presents an informal showing/discussion of work-in-progress in December.  In January, they put finishing touches on the concert and fully produce two evening-length concerts toward the end of the month.  During the last week of Winter Term, DCM takes their work on the road touring regionally, nationally, or even internationally.


Native + Stranger is an interdisciplinary exploration of individuality, place, acquisition, lineage, and the construction of identity. Artistic Director Christal Brown collaborates with Rulan Tangen, Artistic Director of Dancing Earth, over two semesters.
