  • What is Orchesis?

    Orchesis is an audition based dance company that focuses on dance technique, performance, and student production. With guided instruction, and numerous performances throughout the year, Orchesis members develop in all facets of the art form. Students are advised and challenged to develop in many elements of dance including technique, choreography, performance, composition, anatomy, movement studies, and dance history. 

    Who can audition for Orchesis? 

    No prior dance training is required, but a passion for dance and an appreciation for the art form are desired. The Orchesis directors are looking for dancers who are technically strong in all genres of dance, which emphasizes the importance of being a well-rounded dancer.  

    When does Orchesis rehearse? 

    Orchesis rehearses on Mondays from 3:30-6:00 and Wednesdays from 3:30-6:00. Company members are enrolled in a daily dance class at BHS from freshman through senior year, which fulfills their PE requirement. 

    AUDITION APPLICATIONS ARE AVAILABLE IN THE SPRING OF EACH YEAR.
