While campus clears for spring break this weekend, 19 dance students and faculty members, Amy Wilkinson and Sarah Cullen Fuller, will head to Springfield, Ohio for the American College Dance Association Conference.

The annual trip to ACDA is a privilege for our dancers, as it provides the opportunity to present their hard work and dance research, network with students and faculty from other dance programs, and get a grasp on the work happening outside of our home university.

Students will take four days of dance classes, learning and growing from new teachers and new dance genres.  They will also perform works “I. First.” by Rena Butler and “Five Her-Stories” by Senior Isabelle Taylor in an adjudicated concert. Senior Sarah Fluegel will also present her research solo “Mind of Movement” in an informal concert.

Be sure to follow our social media to get a behind the scenes look at ACDA, and check back next week for a recap of the conference.
