Orchesis (Dance) Collection
Orchesis attempts to introduce students to the broadest opportunities possible for active participation in the various forms of dance. Students work with visiting artists; attend performances in other venues; study in New York City; engage in choreographic projects; work in the community to educate and develop an audience for dance; gain experience in lighting, sound and costume design – all technical aspects of performance.
The Hankey Center houses the Orchesis (Dance) Collection, which is an ever-growing collection of unique dance materials and footage. This photography exhibit highlights the variety of performances Orchesis has shared with the Wilson College community, primarily from the 1940s to the 1980s.
