The Troy Dance Repertory Ensemble (TDRE) is a group of elite dancers who have helped TROY UNIVERSITY launch its dance minor in the Department of Theatre and Dance. During this first year, TROY has begun with the best, presenting an ensemble of dancers who represent the program we are building; therefore, we are looking for well-trained dancers who are or have the potential to be quality performers.
The performances of the TROY DANCE REPERTORY ENSEMBLE include a variety of dance genres, focusing mainly on lyrical contemporary. Whereas most university dance program performances emphasize the core offerings of ballet and modern, TROY DANCE offers new variations on this tried and true combination. While TDRE members train extensively in Ballet and Contemporary, they perform equally most dance genres and are a versatile group.
TDRE travels as often as funding allows, performing when invited. One of the first universities to participate at major dance conventions like the Pulse and NUVO, the TDRE program keeps dancers in front of the best names in the dance industry.
