This performance took place August 17, 2023.

Performance ensembles from University of South Florida, University of the Arts, University of Oklahoma, Modesto Junior College, and University of New Mexico, all selected from their American College Dance Association regional conference, performed on the outdoor Henry J. Leir Stage for one performance only.

The American College Dance Association (ACDA) supports and promotes a wealth of talent and creativity from college and university dance departments. Each spring, ACDA hosts regional conferences around the country with performances, workshops, panels, and classes. At each conference, a panel of expert adjudicators selects works in an anonymous process to be performed at a gala performance which concludes the conference. The dances are choreographed by undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and guest artists. Selected works from each region are identified by regional adjudicators before highlights are selected for this performance at Jacob’s Pillow.
