American College Dance Association Conference Highlights

 

Ten students and two faculty members of the UC Dance Program attended the Mid-Atlantic North regional conference of the American College Dance Association from March 4-8, 2020, at the University of Maryland, at College Park, MD. The focus of the association is to “support and promote the wealth of talent and creativity that is prominent throughout college and university dance departments.” While at the conference, students performed in two dance works, participated in dance classes, and networked with dancers in peer institutions. A highlight of the event was the selection of Visiting Dance Professor Bailey Anderson’s dance, Ridiculous Rigor: Past, Present, and Possible, for the Gala performance.
