Whether it’s a Balanchine ballet, or breaking, locking, and popping, CSM’s Dance Ensemble performs a variety of pieces to appeal to all lovers of dance. The dance ensemble presents two performances each year, which may include traditional ballet alongside modern styles such as hip hop, contemporary, and jazz dance.

CSM’s dancers come from diverse backgrounds and experiences ranging from credit students on the path to professional dance careers to community members with strong regional experiences in dance studios and theaters. In addition to their practical experiences in ensemble rehearsals, CSM’s dancers receive intensive instruction in method classes in ballet and contemporary dance.

Theater and dance performances take place at the La Plata Campus, Hank Willoughby Foundation Center for the Arts (FA Building), Brad and Linda Gottfried Theater.

Theater tickets are $10 per person. Dance tickets are $5 per person.

by Tennessee Williams

Amanda Wingfield is a faded remnant of Southern gentility who now lives in a dingy St. Louis apartment with her son, Tom, and her daughter, Laura, who has a physical handicap and debilitating shyness. The father has left home; Tom supports his mother and sister with a shoe-factory job he finds unbearable. When Amanda convinces Tom to bring home from his workplace a “gentleman caller” for Laura, the illusions that Tom, Amanda, and Laura have each created in order to make life bearable collapse about them.
