Formed in 2008, the IVC Performing Dance Ensemble is the capstone course of the IVC Dance Department ‘s Commercial Dance Certificate. Although we provide continuing education for dance enthusiasts, this program’s focus is on training aspiring dancers to either enter the entertainment industry after their certification or transfer to a university dance program to pursue their formation.
Intermediate and advanced dance students follow the format of a dance company’s work, developing and performing a repertoire by Artistic Director Marie de la Palme, as well as works by guest choreographers.
The dancers refine their roles through multiple performances and touring, get feedback on effective auditioning, create and refine a professional resume, and research career opportunities and agents.
