Dance performance

Dance has been a rich part of college history for much longer than 30 years with class offerings, a repertory dance company, and highly respected teachers. Indeed a foundation on which to build! This year we are celebrating the 30th anniversary of Dance as a distinct academic program with courses listed under the DAN prefix and the formation of Meredith Dance Theatre. A 30th Anniversary concert and Alumnae Gala will be held on Saturday, April 25th at 7:30 PM to celebrate.
