October was a busy month for the dance program; as we approach midterms, our students are are gearing up for "Fall Dance Festival." The student choreographers previewed their work-in-progress a few weeks ago and it was exciting to watch these young artists showcase unique voices through movement.
Our graduate students represent the heart and soul of our program. They teach, direct, innovate, publish, attend conferences and festivals, all the while serving as excellent mentors to our undergraduate population. They also advise us how best to address issues in education that keep us contemporary, meaning, of course, that we must establish communication based on trust and mutual respect.
