with the Etude Ensemble

Claire Trevor Theatre

Dance legend Donald McKayle has transcended boundaries for more than six decades with a multifaceted and wide-ranging career as a choreographer, director, performer, and professor of dance creating a repertoire of acclaimed masterworks.

The UC Irvine Etude Ensemble is an elite group of undergraduates who are chosen annually by audition. Under McKayle’s guidance, the dancers are not only dynamic performers, but also historians. Dancers are challenged to personalize each movement by forming an emotional and physical connection to the story itself.

Join Professor McKayle and his Etude Ensemble for a night of incredible works!
