Under the direction of dance professor David Curwen, ensemble members have represented the university at the Oakland Dance Festival, the east central and national conferences of the American College Dance Festival Association, Michigan Dance Council Dance Day, RADFest and more.
The Western Dance Project was invited to perform in the Dance Chicago 2009 Grand Finale concert in Evanston, Illinois on December 12, 2009. This concert featured dances that represented the “best of festival” from Dance Chicago’s two week festival earlier in the year. The Western Dance Project performed the dance Yes, and . . ., created by Chicago choreographer, Autumn Eckman. “Yes, and…” was one of thirteen dances selected from nearly 300 dances in the two-week festival. The creation of the dance was commissioned by the Western Dance Project as part of its touring repertoire.
