Gallim Dance Troupe to Perform at Wesleyan

The Hartford Courant published a feature story on the Gallim Dance Troupe, which will perform two dances at Wesleyan’s Center for the Arts on Feb. 8 and 9. Gallim choreographer and founder Andrea Mitchell, a Bridgeport native who took master classes at Wesleyan, was called “a wild child of movement innovation” by Dance Magazine.

“It’s a meteoric success story,” CFA director Pamela Tatge says of Miller’s rise in contemporary dance. “Her movement vocabulary has so much to do with about now — its risk-taking, its fierceness, its athleticism. It’s so engaging and really just has the finger on the pulse of a certain contemporary energy that people seem to respond to.”
