American College Dance Association
Every year Beloit dance students and faculty travel to the American College Dance Association’s (ACDA) regional conference. At the conference, we attend classes for 4 days and perform in adjudicated concerts and informal performances.
Two of the dances from Chelonia, Beloit’s annual dance concert—one faculty/guest work and one student work—are chosen to be presented at the American College Dance Association (ACDA) regional festivals each spring. Since 2001, Beloit’s dances are regularly selected for the prestigious gala concert.
Off Campus Training
Many Beloit dancers go to summer programs such as the American Dance Festival in Durham, NC, or do summer study in New York. Some of our dancers have earned scholarships for summer study and prestigious internships at these programs. Past and present dance students are actively involved in regional dance companies.
Students often do internships during the summer in a variety of locations such as New York City, Bates Dance Festival, and American Dance Festival. For instance, one student participated in a internship in the costume shop at the Reynolds Industries Theater for American Dance Festival.
