CWU Orchesis dance performance runs through June 3

Central Washington University’s Orchesis dance performance each spring is not a last-minute affair. In fact, the company starts the process early in fall quarter each year to get prepared for its dance showcase.

Performances are planned 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday in McConnell Hall Auditorium. Tickets are $10 for general admission, $8 for seniors and students and $5 for CWU students. Tickets can be purchased online at

Director Therese Young said the company has been around for more than 30 years at CWU, and features modern styles, jazz and a little ballet and tap. The company draws from Central’s dance minors, but also from students all around campus. Young said the program just got a dance major approved, so a bachelors of arts in dance will be available starting this fall.
