Project Abstract/ Summary

Each year has brought increased interest in the Dance program. The Dance department is faced with increasing interest each year. More and more students want to declare Dance as a minor and the program is fitted to capacity. The problem with the program is that all faculty members are part-time and are paid per course. Yet, students want and should be able to perform under the guidance of an Artistic Director. It is essential to compensate that person for the time she spends choreographing and facilitating both the fall works-in-progress and the full spring concert. Therefore, the Division of Theatre/Dance and the School of Performing Arts are submitting a request to Cultural Affairs primarily to support personnel costs. A modest production budget is also requested to support that person's efforts for both shows.
