We are organizing a dance recruit day for hopeful future dance majors. We are asking each of you to take a copy of the flyer, or two, and bring them to your old studios or ones you are currently teaching at.
Also, make sure they RSVP because we have a limited space.
The recruit day will include a masterclass...small 30 min show...and a Q&A session.
Please check your boxes there is a copy of the flyer for you to distribute. This is very important for the future success of our dance department and we hope you can all help out in our recruiting!
What a concert! Strong choreography, great technical design and support, beautiful costuming, good audience turnout, and fantastic performances characterized our Halloween weekend.
Early this semester, dance majors were challenged to regularly record expressions of gratitude. Now, halfway through the fall semester, there have been two months of experiences.
Please use the comments link below to add your experiences with gratitude this fall. The postings may be anonymous or you may identify yourself, but please add. The first comment might be the hardest, so I'll begin :-)
