The Choreographer’s Gallery is a fantastic opportunity facilitated by the Department of Theatre and Dance for Gustavus dance students. The choreographers include Seniors Marissa Augustin, Jordan Klitzke, Sarah Jabar, Patrick Jeffery, Katelyn Pedersen, Andrea Nelson, Nina Serratore, Jill VanOsdol and Kayla Winter, and Juniors Haley Carpenter, Amy Hassenstab, and Leah McEllistrem.

This captivating and diverse dance concert is intended to be a platform for creative research in both choreography and design. The Anderson Theatre, normally a thrust stage, will be reconfigured to offer a proscenium stage experience for the students. The department will act as an accommodating resource to enable the students to realize their artistic vision.

The Choreographer’s Gallery will have the support and technical expertise of faculty Terena Wilkens in the area of lighting and sound, and Andrea Gross in costume design, along with student designers Kelly Franzen, lighting design, and Robert Crogan, costume design.

Tickets are available November 10 online at or by calling the Gustavus Ticket Center at 507-933-7590. Reserved seating tickets are $7 for adults, $5 for students and senior citizens, and free for Gustavus students and staff.
