This year, The Dance Project will include choreography from WKU dance alumni Kylene Stephens, Mitchell Haley, Ashleigh Keefer, Roshunda Brown and Becky Gotsch. It can often be hard for dancers, once they graduate, to find resources and venues to continue the craft of choreography. This opportunity allows them access to dancers, studio space and a performance where they can present their unique work. It also allows the department’s current students the opportunity to connect with former students and establish professional connections and insight into the professional world.
The Dance Project will be performed in the Gordon Wilson Hall Lab Theatre, a venue that allows the audience to be closer to the dancers and really be a part of the performance.
Performances take place at 8 p.m. Feb. 14-15 and 3 p.m. Feb. 16. Tickets are $6 and may be purchased online at wku.showare.com or by calling the box office at (270) 745-3121.
