Following majorette dance team Orchesis Dance Company in ‘Taking the Stands’

Taking the Stands is a new mini-docuseries following Orchesis Dance Company of Louisiana’s Grambling State University (GSU). Orchesis was founded in 1948, by Catherine Jones Williams with goals to train dancers aesthetically, develop high artistic standards and foster an appreciation of dance as an art form, create a community awareness of modern dance and make it an accessible experience, and develop an ongoing repertoire that educates as it entertains. The talented and mission-driven dance company remains a proud part of GSU and a force to be reckoned with in the majorette dance competition scene. Over 70 years since its founding, Orchesis continues to take the stands at sporting events, school functions and, more recently, big entertainment performances like television commercials and films including, Drumline and The Great DebatersREAD MORE
