GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP – Stockton University’s Performing Arts program presents the Fall Choreography Project, an adjudicated performance for rising choreographers, Dec. 1-3, in the Stockton Performing Arts Center.

Continuing a 30-year tradition of presenting unpredictable and thought provoking works from choreographers at all stages of their artistic development, the Fall Choreography Project focuses on giving promising dancemakers from the Stockton Dance Company a platform to exhibit their work.

Company members have rehearsed throughout the fall in preparation for the adjudicated showcase. The Fall Choreography Project is an opportunity for audiences to view the early work of the next generation of New Jersey dance artists.

“The dances for this show were chosen by a panel of Stockton faculty and represent a spectrum of the choreographic innovation coming from the Stockton Dance community,” said Beau Hancock, assistant professor of Dance. “This production is a chance for these maturing makers to test the expertise they hone inside the classroom. The concert includes moments of physical virtuosity as well as powerful simplicity.”

“Having my choreography featured in Stockton’s 2022 Fall Choreography Project is an opportunity that I am honored and thrilled to participate in,” Molly Glenn, a senior dance major of Farmingdale said. “It is truly rewarding to think that I will be able to share many months’ worth of work performed on stage thanks to the guidance of the Dance department faculty, and the cast of peers who have so graciously trusted me through this process.”

The Fall Choreography Project will be performed at 7:30 p.m., Thursday through Saturday, Dec. 1-3. Tickets are $12 for general admission and $10 for students, seniors and alumni.

Tickets can be ordered online at or by calling the Box Office at 609-652-9000. Box Office hours are Tuesday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 pm. and 90 minutes before each performance. For patrons with special needs, the university offers wheelchair-accessible seating, listening-assistive devices and large-type programs.
