Reminder of Sign-in Process for Attending Required Departmental Concerts

A reminder that BFAs are required to attend Departmental Concerts.  Students must arrive on time and sign in with Brillana before entering the theater.  Signing in is the only acceptable proof of attendance.  Students who forget to sign in or arrive after the sign-in period has closed will not receive attendance credit.  Sign-in with Brillana is only for students attending as an audience member–it is not for students who are performing or doing production work.  Failure to attend a required concert results in one strike towards artistic probation.

Mason Gross Dance Alumni Make Debut with Hysterika Jazz Dance in NYC!


Come see Emily Funicello and Maddie Warriner perform with Barbara Angeline’s Hysterika Jazz Dance on April 9th and 10th as part of the New York Jazz Choreography Project at the Salvatore Capezio Theater in New York City! Choreographers include Barbara Angeline, Bob Boross, Bill Hastings and Chet Walker, who choreographed “Fosse” and “Pippin” on Broadway! After the Sunday performance, Barbara will also be part of the choreographer Q&A panel.

Hysterika Jazz Dance will perform excerpts from “eat Crow”, a work that explores the relative idea of “freedom” in the 1920s, through the eyes and inspiration of Josephine Baker and jazz dancers of that era.
