Contemporary Dance Ensemble (CoDa)

The Contemporary Dance Ensemble, commonly referred to as CoDa, is a re-envisioning of the oldest dance company at Williams (Dance Company) and creates and performs works primarily in the genre of contemporary dance. Under the guidance of faculty members Erica Dankmeyer (Artistic Director) and Janine Parker (Assistant Director), CoDa dancers train year-round in both modern dance and ballet, and put on two major performances a year. The CoDa directors create original work for the ensemble each year, and continue the tradition of supporting student choreography.

All students at Williams College who are interested in dance—including both men and women—are eligible to join CoDa and are encouraged to try out. Auditions are held on the first Saturday of each Fall semester.
