Director Caitlin Osborne states, “These dancers have built an amazing company over their years in our program. They have all contributed so much, and we will miss them terribly. But, they will be going out with a bang and showing the campus community what they are capable of.”
Faculty choreographers, Caitlin Osborne, KT Huckabee, and Bethany Miller contribute tap, modern, jazz, ballet, and musical theatre styles to the show. Danielle Johnson, senior in the integrative arts program, will also have a second showing of her senior project, “Illumination,” as part of the performance.
